Tax Office Open for Property Tax Payments Online 24/7
Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Ann Harris Bennett announces that all Harris County Tax Office locations will be closed December 23 and 24 for the Christmas holidays. All offices also will be closed on December 31, New Year’s Eve.
“Harris County residents and property owners are reminded that even though all Tax Office locations will be closed for the holidays, auto registration renewals and property tax payments may be made online 24/7,” said Bennett. “Additionally, property owners may choose to pay their property tax statement by phone using a free e-check.”
