    • We highly recommend scheduling your payment sufficiently in advance of the due date to allow adequate time for your financial institution to process your request.
    • Check to see if your bank postmarks all check payments with the U.S. Postal Service. Beware - payments arriving without a postmark are considered paid on the date they are received, as required by law, and are subject to penalties and interest.

    Pre-Payment

    Pre-Payment is an option for taxpayers to have the flexibility to pay any amount at any time towards their future taxes. If the total amount of pre-payments is not sufficient to pay the taxes in full, the tax payer is responsible to pay the remaining balance by January 31.

    Requirements:

    • Current and prior taxes must not be delinquent
    • We must have consent from the payer to apply the money as a prepayment.
    • Make a notation on the check or envelope indicating this is a prepayment. If not your payment will be return as “duplicate payment”.

    Payment options:

    • Mail
    • In Person
    • Drop box

    Once the tax bill is prepared, the collector shall apply the fund towards the taxes imposed.

    • An original bill will be sent to all taxpayers that have participated in this program.
    • If an over payment applies, the tax payer will receive a refund, receipt and original tax bill.
    • If the total amount of pre-payments is not sufficient to pay the taxes in full, the tax payer is responsible to pay the remaining balance by January 31.

    Escrow

    Taxpayers may enter into a contract with the Williamson County Tax Assessor/Collector for monthly deposits into a tax escrow account. The payments shall be based on an estimate using the previous year’s tax amount paid.

    Initiate an escrow contract:

    • Current and prior year taxes must not be delinquent.
    • The payments must be automatically debited from the taxpayer’s checking or savings account.
    • Payment is automatically debited on the 10th of each month.

    Payment & Refunds:
    Once the tax bill is prepared, the collector shall apply the escrow funds toward the taxes imposed and deliver a tax receipt(s) to the owner. Any excess funds will remain in their escrow account and be applied to the next tax bill, unless the taxpayer(s) requests in writing that the overage be refunded.

    If the total amount in the taxpayer’s escrow account is not sufficient to pay the taxes in full, the Collector shall notify the taxpayer regarding the remaining balance in October or soon after and will deduct the remaining balance due in November, and at that time will deliver a tax receipt(s) to the owner(s).

    Withdraw
    The taxpayer may withdraw the entire balance of funds from the escrow account at any time before October 1st or before tax bills are issued, whichever is earlier. Partial withdrawals are not allowed. Withdrawal of funds from the escrow account will render the escrow contract null and void for that tax year.

    For more information, please view the Monthly Escrow Program information sheet. If you have further questions or concerns regarding the escrow payment option, contact the Williamson County Tax office at (512) 943-1603 or by email at escrow@wilco.org.

    Partial Payments

    We do accept partial payments, per Tax Code Section 31.07 Acceptance of a partial payment does not affect the date that the tax becomes delinquent. Penalties and interest are incurred on the portion of the tax that remains unpaid on the date the tax becomes delinquent.
