Tax Information Across Galveston County

Depending on where you live, it is possible that you will receive tax statements from multiple governments.

Property taxes in Texas are based on the January 1 market value of your property as determined by the county appraisal district (CAD). The CAD handles all ownership, exemption, and value information on your property. Under State law, we are not able to make a change to your property tax account without authorization by the CAD.

Each spring, the CAD issues notices of appraised value. You have until May 31st (or 30 days after the date of the notice whichever is later) to protest the value they have arrived at. Please see our booklet, Effectively Protesting Taxes.pdf at the Important Information link on our homepage for additional information on the protest process.

After the appraisal roll is certified, local governments adopt their budgets and tax rates. During the month of October, we produce tax statements and mail them to property owners and mortgage companies. If your property taxes are escrowed by your mortgage company, we will NOT send you a tax statement. Tax statements may be obtained (and taxes paid) online by going to our link County Tax Data Base Online.
