RCAD appraisers have begun field work – inspections and appraisals – for the 2023 tax year. Appraisers will be visiting properties in the north and northeast parts of the county, so property owners in those areas can expect to see vehicles with signs and lights identifying them from the appraisal district. Appraisers will also have business cards, high visibility vests, and badges identifying them as appraisal district staff; anyone with further questions should feel free to call the District at 325-365-3583.

Please remember, RCAD appraisers will never climb fences, breech locked gates (except with permission of the property owner), and every effort is made to honor signs marking a property as private. If we cannot access your property and there are buildings that need to be inspected, you will be sent a letter requesting contact or information to coordinate property access with the owner. We respectfully ask that you contact this office immediately if you receive a Property Access Request letter.


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.
