Our mission is to provide accurate property assessments to facilitate the local funding for our county, schools, cities, and other districts that derive budgets and other operating expenses from local property values.

Welcome to Mills Central Appraisal District!

Welcome to the website of the Mills Central Appraisal District. Within this site, you will find general information about the District and the ad valorem property tax system in Texas, as well as information regarding specific properties within the district. The District strictly adheres to the Texas Property Tax Code to provide equality and accurate assessments for its constituents and tax base.

The Texas Constitution requires local taxing units to make taxpayers aware of tax rate proposals and to afford taxpayers the opportunity to roll back or limit tax increases.

Property owners are encouraged to use the website below to find information concerning your estimated taxes, the taxing units to which your taxes are distributed, the dates and locations of any public hearings where your locally elected officials will determine your tax rates, and other important property tax information.  Your property tax burden is determined by your locally elected officials.

Website Provides Information on Property Tax Rates

Property owners in Mills County will soon receive a postcard directing them to mills.countytaxrates.com. This is the official website on which property owners can easily access information regarding property taxes, including the amount of taxes that each entity that taxes a property will impose if the entity adopts its proposed tax rate.

Taxing units regularly update this website during August and September as local elected officials propose and adopt the property tax rates that will determine how much you pay in property taxes.

The website allows property owners to provide feedback on the tax rate process and provides the following property-specific information for each taxing unit authorized to levy a tax on the property, including:

  • property values;
  • proposed tax rates;
  • an estimate of property taxes that would be imposed under the proposed rates;
  • dates and locations of public hearings on the tax rates; and
  • other useful information on taxing unit budgets, revenue and rate calculations.

Continue to check the website for updates throughout the tax rate adoption process in August and September.

2022 Property Reappraisal to begin in August

August 2021

Codi McCarn, Chief Appraiser of the Mills Central Appraisal District, announced that field work will begin in August on the designated area of the county scheduled for reappraisal for 2021. Employees of Western Valuation and Consulting, LLC, will be going through the southern part of Mills County, this includes properties south of Hwy 84 E and south of FM 574.  The appraisers will be updating pictures and information on improvements in these areas.

The appraisers will have a sign on the side of their trucks showing that they are with the appraisal district and they will have photo identification.  If any taxpayer is concerned about their legitimacy, they should call the district office at 325-648-2253.  No appraiser will ever ask to come into anyone’s house.  If anyone represents themselves as employees of the district or contractors and asks to see the interior of a taxpayer’s home, they should be denied access and the taxpayer should call law enforcement.
