Public Notice to All Delta County Property Owners
Dear Delta County Property Owner,
Section 26.04(e-2), which was added to the Tax Code by SB 2 in 2019, requires appraisal districts to provide notice to property owners, by mail or email, that their estimated taxes may be found at a website hosted by the appraisal district and the tax data maintained by the tax assessor-collector and local taxing entities.
For Delta County, the website is https://delta.countytaxrates.com/. You will be receiving a postcard in the mail alerting you to go to visit Texas.gov/propertytaxes to view a proposed estimate of your 2022 property tax bill. You may reach the Delta County website through this online portal. These postcard mailings are required to be mailed by August 7, or as soon thereafter as practicable.
