Tax Office

Monte S. Shaw is the Wise County Tax Assessor/Collector. The Wise County Tax Assessor/Collector is a constitutional officer mandated by the Texas constitution, elected by and directly responsible to the people. Because of the wide range of responsibilities performed by the Assessor/Collector, most citizens deal with this office more frequently than with any other. The Office of the Tax Assessor/Collector provides services for Property Tax Collections and is designated by statute as the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) agent for the collection of motor vehicle sales tax, registrations, titles services and other related fees. The Wise County Tax Office collects ad valorem property taxes for Wise County and 24 additional taxing entities. Additionally, the Tax Assessor/Collector's office also issues tax certificates, conducts Sheriff Sales for real and personal property, and collects State mandated vehicle inventory tax.

It is the goal of the Wise County Tax Office to provide professional customer service and efficiency to all taxpayers, communicate effectively with colleagues and taxpayers and work with the community, organizations and governing bodies to provide information about property taxation in Wise County. Further, we will comply with policies established by Texas Property Tax Code, local board authority and federal and state law.

Our Team is committed to serving you. Please don't hesitate to call on us should you have any questions regarding your property taxes, vehicle registration or title services. You can also visit us at any of our three office locations; we are open Monday thru Friday 8 AM to 5 PM, but may be closed for lunch in Boyd and Bridgeport.

Forms of Payment: We accept cash, check, debit and credit cards for tax and auto transactions. There is a convenience fee of 2.35% or a minimum $1 with a debit or credit card.
