Tax payers may qualify to receive an exemption on their property. Please call the Potter-Randall Appraisal District on how to qualify for exemptions. Their phone number is (806) 358-1601. You can refer to their website: www.prad.org.
Property tax statements are mailed by October 1. They are due upon receipt and no later than January 31 of the following year. Penalty and interest accrue beginning February 1.
Beginning July the penalty and interest is 18% along with an additional collection fee of 20%.
*Beginning February 1, if your account is under suit, then an additional 15% collection fee will apply from February through June. All delinquent business personal or mobile home accounts will increase to 20% collection fee beninning April 1. Real estate and oil and gas accounts will increase to 20% collection fee beginning July 1.
Anyone may request and receive a tax certificate on a property. The tax certificate will show the amount of delinquent taxes, penalties and interest due on a property according to current tax records. Since our office collects for more than one taxing unit, it must show the amount for each taxing unit.
If there are no taxes due, the tax certificate will show a zero amount. If there are taxes due, and you want the tax certificate to show a zero amount, you must pay the taxes with cash, certified funds or wait (10) working days for your check to clear.
The fee for the tax certificate is $10.00. The fee must be paid with certified funds at the time the tax certificate is picked up.
You may request and pick up a tax certificate at either location. We accept e-mail requests for tax certificates. The email address is email@example.com. Please indicate in your email whether you will pick up the tax certificate at the Canyon or Amarillo location.
If you have any questions regarding tax certificates, please call 806-468-5540.
