Appraisal District News


RCAD appraisers have begun field work and appraisals for the 2024 tax year. Property owners may see appraisers in marked vehicles with safety vests and lights taking photographs. Typically, appraisers will be out in the morning between 8am-noon, but field appraisals may extend into the afternoon if necessary at the appraiser’s best judgment.

Vehicles and personnel should be clearly marked/identified, but anyone with questions or concerns may call our office at 325-365-3583.

Our appraisers do their best to respect property owners’ rights, so if we cannot access a particular property for any reason, we may submit a written request or place a call for access with the property owner or contact of record. A timely response is appreciated to help us complete our field work as efficiently as possible.


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.
