Welcome to Hamilton County Appraisal District




In abundance of caution and in keeping with the recommendations of the CDC, the Hamilton County Appraisal District is taking precautionary measures to reduce potential exposure to our staff and our local community members through participation and cooperation with public social distancing measures.


Our office doors will temporarily be closed to the public effective 1:30 p.m. March 20, 2020 until further notice.


We will continue to work and provide the usual customary functions and processes related to Appraisal District matters.


We will continue to answer phone calls, emails, and requests received during regular business hours.


We understand that these changes may present temporary hardships for some, and we appreciate your patience.  We will do our best to work with each of you to meet your needs, as we are able, on a case-by-case basis, using the currently available technology and resources.
