Avoid Lines at the Tax Office

WilcoFrom the Williamson County Public Information Office:

July 19, 2013 (Williamson County, TX) – –Williamson County is one of the fastest growing counties in Texas. The increase in county population, along with many people waiting until the end of the month to get their motor vehicle tags renewed, has caused longer lines at the Williamson County Tax Assessor/Collector’s four offices. Below are tips to help vehicle registration renewal customers avoid standing in those long lines.

Online renewals may be processed through the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles at www.txdmv.gov and are assessed a $3 convenience fee. Allow a week for your documents to be processed.

Mail-in your registration renewal and payment by the 15th of the month in order to have your vehicle registration processed and returned by mail before the end of the month.

Current month vehicle registration renewals can be done at AAA located at 13376 N Hwy 183 #108, Austin or AAA at 201 University Blvd., Round Rock, and at all Williamson County HEB Business Centers, currently excluding Taylor. The Taylor HEB will begin processing vehicle registration renewals by September.

Renew current month vehicle registration by phone through our Information Services Department by calling 512-943-1602.

Avoid the first and last week of the month, as well as lunch time if you go in person to the Tax Assessor/Collector’s Office.

If you are going to the tax office to pay property taxes or renew a registration, remember drop boxes are found inside at every location, except Georgetown where the drop box is located on the front of the building.

We also encourage residents to pay property taxes by mail. We honor United States Postal Service post marks. Receipts will be provided upon request.

“We know that time is very precious to our customers, so we want them to be aware of all their options in order to avoid waiting in a line,” said Deborah Hunt, Williamson County Tax Assessor/Collector. “With the increase in gas prices, it is worth paying the small processing fee to renew online or by mail.”

The four tax office locations are below:

Cedar Park, 350 Discovery Blvd. Suite 101

Georgetown, 904 S. Main Street

Round Rock, 1801 Old Settlers Blvd. Suite 115

Taylor, 412 Vance St. Suite 1
