June 1, 2020 Rains County Appraisal District

will open to the public with the following protocol:

  • The public can come in the lobby two people at a time.
  • We highly encourage the use of a face mask due to property owners from many localities and to protect our staff and ARB members.


 When you arrive, call the office 903-473-2391 to check in. Stay in your car until your hearing (we will call or come get you).  If you have documents, photos, etc. that you have not already given to your appraiser, let us know and we will come get it from your car to scan into your account so that it can be seen by all board members.  When you come in, your temperature will be taken.

Telephone hearings will be the most preferred method if the outbreak alert continues.  RCAD will only be able to provide limited face-to-face customer service of informal settlements between property owners and staff members.  We encourage property owners to conduct business remotely by using our online system or email your appraiser directly.  Please be patient as our staff will try to reach out to each owner if they can be of assistance.  We project face-to-face ARB hearings will be conducted during the month of July.

If you have a fever, cough or symptomatic, have been in contact with anyone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 diagnosis in the past 14 days, please reschedule your hearing.

If you requested your hearing notice to be delivered by certified mail, $5.00 has been added to your account.  Please pay the fee at the time of your hearing.  If you have any questions, contact our office.

Making Tax Payments

Payment options include:   mailing your payment,  pay online at our website Rainscad.org or call 1-866-549-2020.  You will need the Bureau Code :  2061175 when paying by phone.

Thank you for your patience during this time.  We apologize for any inconvenience this could cause.
