Penalty and interest will accrue on 2018 tax amounts for payments not received or postmarked by January 31, 2019. Due to the large number of payments received after January 20th there will be a delay in getting all payments posted in a timely manner.

CREDIT CARD PROCESSING FEE
The appraisal district does not sell a product on which the price can be increased in order to recoup the cost of credit card processing fees. We would have to increase our budget to cover the additional cost. Because only a small percentage of tax payments are processed using a credit card as the means of payment, the appraisal district has chosen not to increase our budget in order for the district to pay the processing fees. Our budget is funded by all taxpayers and we will not place the additional cost burden of a convenience fee on taxpayers who do not utilize the credit card option.
