Fort Bend County Tax Office

Fort Bend County government’s tax offices have opened to the public but with reduced lobby capacity.

The Richmond office, along with the Katy, Missouri City, Sienna and Sugar Land offices, are offering full-service auto and property tax processing at their normal business hours The Needville office remains closed to the public, though staff is processing transactions received through the drop box, mail, and dealer drop-offs.

The tax research department in Richmond will continue serving customers via phone, email, mail and drop box, with limited in-person assistance by appointment only.

“With social distancing in place, it is critical that we reduce the number of people in our lobbies,” said Fort Bend County Tax Assessor-Collector Carrie Surratt.

“More than 50% of our lobby traffic is customers renewing their vehicle registration. This can be done in mere minutes by using your smart phone, tablet, or computer, or by mailing your renewal to us. In either case, you should receive your new sticker in the mail in less than two weeks. So don’t wait in line or potentially expose yourself to COVID-19; renew online or through the mail.”

Residents are strongly encouraged to continue using contact-free methods for their auto and property tax needs, as seating is currently unavailable in tax office lobbies.

Online registration renewal is available at, while property tax payments can be made at www. Please visit
