Bosque County ꟷ The Bosque County Central Appraisal District will continue operations, but will no longer provide in person services to the public inside the building starting at 8 a.m. Friday, March 20 as part of the effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the area.
We are following the guidelines from the CDC, the Texas Department of State Health Services, the White House, and the Governor, by social distancing and disinfecting to protect the public we serve.
The appraisal district will continue operations, and we are committed to being responsive to our property owners. However, we believe it is in the best interest of our property owners and employees to temporarily suspend direct face-to-face contact with the public while continuing to provide services through other options, such as the phone or our online services. We will be evaluating the situation on a daily basis.
We are offering several ways for property owners to conduct BCCAD business during this time, including:
- Online: Property owners can find key information and forms via our website.
- Email: Property owners can submit requests and applications by emailing us at feedback@BosqueCAD.com.
- Phone: Property owners can reach us by calling us at 254-435-2304 during normal business hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Fax: Property owners can submit homestead applications by faxing us at 254-435-6139.
- Mail: Property owners can send applications to PO Box 393, Meridian, TX 76665.
- Office Drop Box: Property owners can drop off documents at the secure drop box available outside our office (9293 Highway 6, Meridian, Texas), next week.
The deadline to file a Homestead Exemption is April 30, while the deadline for the Agricultural Use Appraisal is before May 1. Property owners may submit their applications at our office drop box or by mail, but we strongly encourage residents to consider their electronic options.
Please help us to help you. When filing an exemption or any application, be sure to include the documents and information requested on the forms, especially a current phone number and email address.
Although appraisal districts across the state are following suit, BCCAD wants to assure the residents of Bosque County that this measure will in no way limit their ability to contact the district office for exemptions, questions, and help of any kind. We will handle every one of them as quickly and efficiently as possible by phone, mail, and email.
At this time, we have received no notification of change from the State Comptroller in regard to deadline dates related to the property tax process. We will make every effort to keep the public and the taxing entities informed of any changes that do occur related to their property taxes and to the status of our operations. Please keep a close watch on our website for any updates. www.BosqueCAD.com
Our hearts go out to everyone impacted, and we will continue to operate in the best interest of our families, residents, and community. We appreciate everyone helping to overcome this situation.
