Property Taxes

The Collin Central Appraisal District (CCAD) appraises property annually and certifies the appraised values to each governmental entity. A person age 65 or older, or a disabled person in the City of Murphy, may apply for an exemption from city taxation of $50,000 of the appraised value of the resident’s homestead. This requires the resident to submit an affidavit claiming eligibility for the exemption to CCAD. Information is available on the CCAD website.

After the property values are certified to the governmental entities, the tax rates are then voted on by each government, in accordance with state law, and reported to the Collin County Tax Assessor and Collector. Information about the tax rates for other governments in Collin County may be found at their website.

The Finance Department maintains a table of property tax rate information by publishing a ten-year history of tax rates in the annual budget book. This table of tax rates is available on Page 14 of the FY23 Final Budget Book. The FY23 Final Budget Book is available by clicking here.
