What is a County Tax Assessor-Collector?
Texas homeowners are aware of the main function of a Tax Assessor-Collector (TAC), which is collecting property taxes. Each city, county and school district contracts with the county TAC office to collect taxes on their behalf. If they didn’t do this, you’d be writing up to 5 or more property tax checks to different entities.
