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

Our website contains general information about the District and the ad valorem property tax system in Texas. The Runnels Central 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.

IMPORTANT NOTICES

APPRAISAL CALENDAR – EQUALIZATION PHASE

Appraisal notices for 2022 were sent out at the end of April with a deadline to file protests on Tuesday, May 31. As of Wednesday, June 1st, no more protests will be accepted that were not filed with this office or postmarked by close of business on May 31st.

Appraisal staff are happy to answer questions and discuss issues pertaining to property valuations; however, we cannot make any changes that would affect the value at this point.

Property owners who filed a formal protest on or before the deadline and were not able to reach a settlement with our appraisers informally can expect to receive information regarding their upcoming Appraisal Review Board hearings in the coming days.

GENERAL OFFICE INFO

Wearing a mask while in our office is currently a matter of personal choice; however, we reserve the right to adapt this policy out of an abundance of caution should the need arise.  Please exercise common sense, if you have been diagnosed positive with COVID-19 or other communicable diseases, are exhibiting any symptoms associated with COVID-19 or other communicable diseases, or have been in contact with someone exhibiting symptoms; plan on conducting business with our office remotely by phone or email.  The lock box continues to be available beside the front door for submission of Homestead Exemption applications, written information requests, supporting documentation, and any other paperwork as needed.  Documents may also be mailed, faxed or emailed (except for exemption or agriculture applications, renditions and other state forms).  Forms must be physically signed by the authorized party; digital signatures are still not accepted at this time.

AS A REMINDER: The Appraisal District does not handle any matters related to tax payments and collections.  Please contact the Tax Office directly at 325-365-2339 or visit their office behind the courthouse at 615 Strong with any questions or to submit your payment.  Payments may also be mailed to PO Box 517, Ballinger, TX 76821.
