Billing Procedures
The Irving city Council adopts a tax rate for property taxes each September when the budget is approved. Property taxes are collected by the Dallas County Tax Office in one installment. Bills are mailed about Oct. 15, and are due Jan. 31. Failure to pay these taxes before Feb. 1 results in a penalty of 6 percent, plus 1 percent per month until July 1 when the penalty becomes 12 percent. After July, the penalty increases 1 percent per month. Interest is 1 percent per month.

The Dallas County Tax Office bills and collects all property taxes for the City of Irving. Bills are mailed to the last known address. It is the taxpayer's responsibility to keep the Dallas Central Appraisal District (DCAD) informed as to where the tax bill is to be mailed. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer of responsibility for paying taxes on time.

Many homeowners pay monthly installments for taxes to their mortgage companies who keep these monies in an escrow account from which they pay taxes. When requested by mortgage companies, tax bills are mailed to them for these properties.

To change your address or for questions about your tax bills, call the Dallas County Tax Office at (214) 653-7811.
