How Do I Sign Up for Residential Homestead Owner Email Announcements?
All Tarrant County residential, commercial, and business personal property owners are invited to claim their free benefits as TAD.org online account holders. In addition to the online services TAD has been providing for well over a decade, we are excited to soon add email announcements of process and notice availability, downloadable calendar reminders for deadlines and important dates, and other features to make the entire property appraisal process easier for you to navigate. Check back for these features in 2020. If you have yet to create an online account at TAD.org, please click here first to see how to get your property’s unique PIN and other helpful information.
How Do I Get My Online Account PIN?
Attention: Only the property owner of record is entitled to the unique, parcel-specific, Online Account PIN (PIN) for the “Account Number” that you would enter in the form below. This PIN will only be mailed via the United States Postal Service to the owner of record at their address of record. If you recently purchased a Residential property, you do not need to request your PIN. TAD will automatically mail your PIN once the deed has been processed by our staff as your PIN will be different than and override the previous owner’s PIN. Authorized agents do not use the PIN for online access. If you are an authorized agent, you will be provided online access to the documents, evidence, and functions afforded you as the property owner’s representative once your Appointment of Agent form is processed by TAD. Agents may contact the Tarrant Appraisal Review Board (TARB) with questions.
TAD includes a unique Online Account PIN for your property on the:
- Residential Sales Survey Letter (see example) which is mailed daily as we process the public deed records of new Residential Real Property owners
- Notice of Appraised Value (see example) which is generally mailed in:
- April for Residential and Commercial Real Property
- May for Residential and Commercial Real Property and Business Personal Property
- June for Business Personal Property and Mineral Property*
- July for Business Personal Property and Mineral Property*
- Business Personal Property Rendition (see example) form or reminder letter which is generally mailed (or emailed if we have it) in:
- Late December for businesses that existing in our records the previous year
- January through March for businesses new to our records that year
You can also request your Online Account PIN if you haven’t recently received one of the documents described above.
Mineral accounts are not currently eligible for Online Account PINs. You may contact TAD’s mineral valuation contractor, Pritchard & Abbott Inc., through their website at www.pandai.com for additional information.
