Welcome to the official website for the Runnels County Appraisal District!

Our website contains general information about the District and the ad valorem property tax system in Texas. The Runnels County Appraisal District is responsible for appraising all real and business personal property within Runnels County according to the Texas Property Tax Code and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices.

RUNNELS CAD OFFICES ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC

In the best interests of our property owners and employees, the Runnels County Appraisal District has closed its doors and is not providing face-to-face customer service.  Staff are still working and available via telephone (325-365-3583) or email (support@runnelscad.org) to offer assistance.

Please note the following:

2020 Notice of Appraised Value & Property Value Protests (UPDATED 7/27/2020)
  • Notices of Appraised Value for real and commercial properties were mailed on May 1st with oil/gas/mineral/industrial properties sent the following week.  Property owners may review their 2020 property value from the Property Search site.
  • The deadline to protest real, small commercial and business personal properties was June 1, 2020 by close of business (5:00 pm CT).  The deadline to protest oil, gas and mineral properties has passed, as well.
  • Property values for the 2020 tax year have been certified, so all values are final for this year.  Taxing entities will now start working on their respective budgets and tax rates in preparation for tax statements to go out in October.
Exemptions and Agriculture
  • The deadline for submission of applications was April 30th, but we are still accepting late filed applications.  Fillable forms can be downloaded here.
  • Late filed Ag applications will be assessed a penalty per account.  Property owners who do not turn in an application at all will lose their agricultural special use valuation, which will result in a significant increase in taxable property valuation and amount of taxes owed.
  • Questions may be directed to our Exemption or Agriculture Specialists via telephone or email at homesteads@runnelscad.org or agriculture@runnelscad.org.
Business Personal Property
  • Renditions were due April 15th; a 10% penalty will be assessed against any late filed rendition forms.
  • Business owners who failed to submit a rendition form at all will be assessed an additional 10% penalty.
  • Penalty waiver requests must be submitted in writing with documentation to support your excuse for late or failure to render, such as a doctor’s note or proof of hospitalization.
  • Questions may be directed to our Personal Property Appraiser via telephone or email: personalproperty@runnelscad.org.
General Information
  • A drop box is located outside the Runnels CAD office doors for submission of forms/applications, written requests, supporting documentation, and any other paperwork as needed. We are also accepting documents via email provided forms are physically signed by the authorized party.; digital signatures are still not accepted at this time.
  • All possible business should be handled by phone, mail, fax, or email.  Click here for office contact information.
