Welcome to the Ector County Appraisal District Website

The Ector County Appraisal District will close
MONDAY, January 17 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr Day

Penalty and Interest will accrue on the 2021 tax amounts for payments not received or postmarked by January 31.

The 2021 Tax Statements have been mailed. If you have not received yours, please contact us.

The chief appraiser's monthly article "Let's Talk Property Tax Matters", will be published here on the first Monday of each month and will include information about current appraisal district activities. Please contact us at the email address above if you have any property tax appraisal or collections questions you would like us to answer.

See the PUBLIC NOTICES on Taxpayer Remedies, Renditions, Exemptions, and Ag Appraisal in the Public Notice section under ABOUT ECAD in the Navigation bar.

HOMESTEAD REQUIREMENTS
Effective 06/01/2013 - In addition to your homestead application with your signature affirming that the property is your principal residence, you must provide a current (or unexpired) Texas driver's license for each owner. All drivers' licenses (or Texas IDs) must have the same mailing address as the property location listed on your homestead application. See the Homestead Documentation link under the General section or contact us for more information.

OFFICE SCHEDULE
Not sure if our offices are open? Check the Holiday Schedule under the About ECAD section in the navigation bar for future holiday closings. The Appraisal District offices are also closed if local weather stations are reporting dangerous driving conditions due to inclement weather.

PAY NOW OPTION
Need to pay your taxes here? Simply find your property using the Search Real-Estate or Search Business Personal Property from the Navigation bar to the left, select it from the list, then open the UNPAID TAX AMOUNT to see the PAY NOW button.

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 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.
