Payment Options

In an effort to make life and business more convenient in Travis County, the Tax Office has provided the following methods to make tax payments.

    Make checks payable to the Travis County Tax Office or Bruce Elfant.
    Find a complete list of our mailing addresses for payments sent through the United States Postal Service on our Contact Us page.
  • Payment options:

    Credit Card - 128-bit SSL encryption provides complete security. All credit card transactions are subject to a 3% vendor fee on payments over $100 or a flat fee of $3.00 for payments up to $100. We process credit card transactions by phone, in-person and online. A debit card that includes a Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express logo can be used as a credit card to make a payment.

    Electronic Check - 128-bit SSL encryption provides complete security. Vendor fees range from $2 to $5 per transaction. (See Electronic Check Fee Structure table below). We process electronic check transactions by phone, in-person and online.

    Electronic Check Fee Structure
    Property Tax Amount Convenience Fee Amount
    $0.01 to $1,000.00 $2.00
    $1,000.01 and over $5.00
    Please note: Payment via electronic check, as described above, is not the same as payment using a "bill pay" service through your bank. Since your bank produces and mails us a paper check when you use a "bill pay" service, there is no additional fee.
    Personal Check or Money Order - The vast majority of property tax payments are made this way. We process personal check and money order payments in-person or by mail. Make checks and money orders payable to the Travis County Tax Assessor-Collector. To ensure timely and accurate processing, include your daytime phone number, Texas Driver's License or DPS ID Number and the the property account or billing number on each payment. There is no additional fee to pay this way.
      Mailed property tax payments should be sent to the following address:
      Travis County Tax Office
      PO Box 149328
      Austin, TX 78714-9328
    Cash - We process cash transactions in-person only at any of the five Travis County Tax Office locations during regular business hours. Do not mail cash. Do not put cash in the red drop-boxes at our 5501 Airport Blvd. location. There is no additional fee to pay this way.
    Letter of Intent for Installment Payments (Español) - Owners with an Over-65 or Disabled Homestead Exemption have an option each year to take advantage of this option. To be fully enrolled in this program, our office must receive BOTH a completed Letter of Intent AND at least 25% of the total amount of taxes due for the current year. Contact us at (512) 854-9473 if you are unable to print the Letter of Intent from here. We can e-mail, fax or mail one to any qualified homeowner who wants to enroll.

    * Credit cards include VISA, Master Card, Discover and American Express. A 3% convenience fee, charged by our 3rd party credit card vendor, applies. Credit card payments will not be accepted by mail or drop box.
    ** Electronic check means that you complete the payment process on our web site or you contact our office by phone and we complete our website processing procedure with you. Fees range from $2 - $5 depending on the amount of the payment. If you contact your own bank to send a check for payment or use a bill pay service through your bank's website, there is no fee charged by our office because the check issued by your bank is received by mail.
    *** Additional penalty and interest accrues on the unpaid portion of the balance due the 1st day of each new month that the taxes remain unpaid. Refer to the Penalty and Interest Chart to more accurately calculate these amounts due.
    **** There are two red drop boxes for checks or money orders only at 5501 Airport Blvd., Austin, TX 78751.
