Appraisal District News


RCAD appraisers have completed field work and appraisals for the 2023 tax year. Appraisal notices were mailed in April for all property types. The deadline to dispute your property’s value was May 30, 2023. Property owners with questions regarding their property’s value may continue to reach out to our office via phone, email, US mail, or in person. However, please understand we are no longer able to change values in any property accounts not already protested on or before the deadline.


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.
