Property taxes are part of your local government's way of paying for services for all citizens. They help maintain roads, pay for safety/emergency services, sanitation services, public parks and also provide a part of your public school's budget. Texas law works to make sure tax values are equal and according to the value of your property.

    About your tax statement

    Statements are usually mailed by October 1 but can be mailed any time between Oct. 1- Jan. 10 of the following year. Your annual property taxes are not prorated, so the statement you get will be for the period of Jan. 1 - Dec. 31.

    If you have a mortgage escrow account with your lender, the lender should request the tax statement for payment. All other statements will be sent directly to the property owner. If you receive a tax statement that should be paid by your mortgage lender, please contact your lender directly.

    You can also print a tax statement from the Garland ISD Tax Office payment website or you can call the tax office and we will mail, fax or email a tax statement to you.

    Paying taxes

    Payment is due upon receipt and must be paid no later than January 31, 2022 to avoid penalty and interest charges. A United States Postal Service postmark is acceptable. However, a metered date is not considered a postmark.

    Payments postmarked after January 31, 2022 will be assessed penalty and interest following State law. We suggest that you have the Post Office hand stamp the date on your envelope to guarantee a January postmark. This same policy applies to each month the payment is late. Please note that paying late in the day on Jan. 31 may lead to a Feb. 1 postmark and incur fees.

    Note: Failure to receive a notice does not warrant a waiver of penalty and interest.

    Appraisal information

    All tax appraisals used for tax purposes are performed by the Dallas Central Appraisal District (DCAD) following State law. In addition, the DCAD provides GISD with owner names, mailing addresses and exemptions granted.

    If you have questions about any of this information or wish to protest your value, please contact DCAD at 214-631-0910 or visit www.dallascad.org.
