Annex drive thru

The two-lane drive-through for the Anderson County Tax Assessor/Collector office has been a constant stream of cars for the past two weeks. 

The office of the Anderson County Tax Assessor/Collector is closed, but the two-lane drive-through remains open.

“I strongly encourage customers both registering and titling cars as well as property tax customers take advantage of mailing transactions and our online services,” said Teri Hanks, the county tax assessor/collector. “Not utilizing the online and mail services will most definitely take longer as you will experience significant wait times in the drive through.”

Hanks noted that, in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles recently granted a 60-day temporary extension for the registration and titling of motor vehicles.

This gives drivers and auto dealers more time before they have to appear at a county tax assessor-collector office to make these arrangements.

Additionally, the Texas Comptroller’s office provided an extension of up to 90 days to pay the motor vehicle tax due on these purchases.

Late penalties will be assessed, as if the last day of the extension is the original due date.
