HAPPY SUMMER!  Please stay cool & stay healthy! 


In efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, our LOBBY is closed to the general public, however; our employees are still here to assist you from the window slot to the left of the door entrance.  All Appraisal & Collection Services are offered from this area for your protection & ours.   If you have questions, please call our office (903) 645-5601 or email sgolden@morriscad.com.  Payments can also be made into the drop box after hours, online @ www.morriscad.com or by phone at the above referenced number.   Stay safe!


Morris County Appraisal District will be mailing Notices of Appraised Values on May 1,2020.  The law requires the Appraisal District to appraise property at 100 percent market value as of January 1.  Districts across the state have requested taxpayer relief from the Governor; however, currently there have been no actions granted to assist.

Business Personal Property Renditions are due April 15, 2020 (subsection C repealed Jan. 1, 2020); however, we’ve automatically granted a 30-day extension to May 15, 2020. 

Our office will follow all mandates by the Governor and the CDC requirements but please be assured the staff is available to you.  For questions, please call (903) 645-5601 or email sgolden@morriscad.com.   Please see our website www.morriscad.com for the latest information. 

I think we can all agree, this is not an ordinary year but we can come together and make it extraordinary.
