Our office is currently closed to the public. We truly sympathize with all taxpayers experiencing financial difficulties during this crisis. At this time, the Governor has not issued any orders to extend payment deadlines or reduce fees related to property taxes. We have no discretion to waive penalty and interest under these circumstances, nor can we extend delinquency dates. Please visit the Payment Plans tab on our website, items 2 & 3, for additional information on paying delinquent property taxes in installments.

For business owners, you may contact the Small Business Administration at 1-800-659-2955 for possible assistance. A list of additional resources can be found at http://epstrong.org/resources.php

The City of El Paso collects property taxes on behalf of all the 38 units of government that levy a tax within El Paso County. We are one of the few large urban offices in Texas fully consolidated for purposes of property tax collection. Our goal is to provide efficient and effective services for the taxpayers. The purpose of this website is to make information readily available for your use.

Effective October 1, 2013, current year tax bills with an amount due less than $5 are not being mailed except by owner request per Property Tax Code 31.01 (f).

Property tax bills are mailed out every October and the payment is due by January 31st. Unpaid tax amounts become delinquent on February 1st. 


Payment of Taxes

Payments accompanied by CURRENT tax bill will be applied to current year taxes and any remainder will be applied to any additional taxes owed, starting with the most delinquent. PARTIAL PAYMENTS ARE ACCEPTED, however, amounts unpaid by delinquency date accumulate penalty, interest, and collection fees. Checks returned unpaid by bank will have all amounts due reinstated plus an additional $30 FEE PER RETURNED CHECK IS ADDED. Foreign currency or second party checks are not accepted.

2019 property taxes are due and may be paid from today through Friday, January 31, 2020, but we recommend payment well before January 31st to avoid delinquent penalties caused by unforeseen circumstances.
