    Forms of Payment

    Important Notice:

    We do not accept cash cards, payroll cards or gift cards.

    Please make checks payable to Wendy Burgess, Tax Assessor-Collector.

    If you submit a cash card, check card, credit card or gift card for payment, your transaction may not be completed and the amount of the transaction may be held in pending status by your card issuer for several weeks. 

    If your card is declined through the terminal, your transaction is declined and you will need to contact your card issuer to release the funds.  Many card issuers will not release your pending funds for several weeks.  A pending transaction will hold your money and will not allow you access to those funds.   This is not a Tarrant County Tax Office issue.  This is a credit card issue.  We do not have your funds and can only provide information to you assist you with the credit card provider. 

    We regret the inconvenience this may be for you; you may elect to pay by check or cash. 

    There are many ATM’s in the area.

    Face-to-face in our offices:  Cash, checks, American Express, Visa, Discover and Mastercard debit and credit cards.
