After temporarily closing to the public, Dallas County officials announced they would reopen, but online transactions were still encouraged.
The office suggests using the county’s website to process vehicle registrations and property tax payments, where they can pay with a check for no additional fee, or use a credit card. Tax payments can also be mailed to P.O. Box 139066, Dallas, TX 75313-9066, or paid by phone through JP Morgan Chase Bank at 866-863-8323 (English) or 866-361- 1741 (Español).
For those coming in to county tax offices, social distancing and masking is required.
“Our neighborhood grocery partners are also processing current vehicle registrations after a valid inspection,” the county said in a statement.
Grocery partners in or near Preston Hollow and the Park Cities include the Tom Thumb locations at Snider Plaza, 4001 Villanova St., 7700 W. Northwest Highway, U.S. 75 and Meadow Road, Royal Lane and Preston Road, and Preston Road and Forest Lane.
“All seven of the Dallas County Tax Office locations are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to assist taxpayers with their property tax payments, but we encourage taxpayers to pay online whenever possible to avoid the crowds,” Dallas County Tax Assessor/Collector John Ames said. “The Dallas County Tax Office encourages citizens who cannot afford to pay in full to make partial payments. Partial payments will be applied and only the remaining balance will be subject to penalties rather than the full original amount due.
“Please be safe and conduct your transaction online if possible.”
The Dallas County Tax Office’s Customer Care Center is available to assist taxpayers with questions regarding property taxes, motor vehicle registrations, and title concerns Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., at 214-653-7811.
