Because of the wide range of responsibilities performed by the assessor-collector, most citizens deal with this county official more frequently than any other office.
The major tax duty of the assessor-collector, who collects property taxes, is the assessment (calculation) of taxes on each property in the county and collection of that tax as established by the Constitution and the State Property Tax Code. In addition, as an agent of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, the assessor-collector is responsible for the registration and licensing of motor vehicles owned by residents of the county.
Another duty of the county tax assessor-collector is that of voter registrar. In most Texas counties, a person would register to vote through the office of county tax assessor-collector. In a few counties, the commissioners court has designated the county clerk or an elections administrator to provide this function.
