Tax Office Closing Doors but Still Assisting the Public

The Smith County Tax Office is closing its doors to the public beginning March 23 and until further notice, but is still working to assistance Smith County residents and businesses.

Smith County Tax Assessor-Collection Gary Barber said that starting Monday, the Tax Office at the Cotton Belt Building will close its doors. His employees will continue working, answering the phones and mail. People can pay their property taxes over the phone, online or through mail. People can renew their auto registration online or through the mail.

Barber said they will also continue to service car dealers who need title work.

From 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, an employee will be at the door to accept title paperwork. From 3-3:30 p.m. on the same days, they will be at the door to pass out the license plates. These drop off and pick up times apply to auto dealers and lien holders.

“We don’t want to hurt any businesses,” Barber said. “We want businesses to be able to continue operating.”

For more information or to make a payment, call 903-590-2920 for property taxes and 903-590-2900 for auto registration. Also visit:
