Tax Assessor-Collector

The Tax Assessor-Collector strictly handles Auto Registration in Parker County. She does not appraise properties. Property appraisals and assessments come from the Parker County Appraisal District.

We recognize the impact and uncertainty that COVID-19 is creating in our community. We place the well-being of our employees and the public above everything else. We are highly encouraging that if you are experiencing any symptom of illness that you stay home and utilize our online services, mail services or drop box service.

Governor Abbott signed a proclamation that directly affects some of the services we provide. The proclamation grants a temporary extension to obtain initial registration, renewal of registration, titling and renewal of a permanent disabled parking placard. Governor Abbott also granted a temporary extension for an individual with an expired 30-day temporary permit to obtain another permit or Texas registration. The purpose of the waiver is to prevent customers from having to physically visit a county tax assessor-collector office to obtain initial registration or a 30-day temporary permit, obtain a title, or to renew registration or a permanent disabled parking placard. Customers may continue to renew their registration online at https://renew.txdmv.gov/Renew/RegistrationRenewalServlet . This waiver will remain in effect until 60 days after TxDMV notifies the public normal services have resumed.

All three Auto Registration locations are open to the public. Please note the number of customers allowed into the office is limited to maintain social distancing requirements. We are not processing Texas Parks and Wildlife transactions at this time. You can contact TPWD at 817-831-3128.  During this challenging time, we ask for your support and cooperation in helping keep our citizens, employees and workplace healthy as we navigate this current health threat while delivering essential services to our citizens.

Sincerely,

Jenny Gentry, Parker County Tax Assessor Collector
