Property Tax

Property taxes become due when the taxpayer receives the statement, typically around the first of October.  Typically taxpayers have until January 31 of the following year to pay their taxes. They become delinquent on February 1 when penalty and interest charges begin accumulating on most unpaid tax bills.

The Dallas County Tax Office collects all the property taxes for the City of Cedar Hill, including properties in both Dallas and Ellis counties. You can contact the Dallas County Tax Office by phone at (214) 653-7811. We can also be reached via mail at:
