MONTGOMERY COUNTY HAS A NEW TAX ASSESSOR/COLLECTOR

100114 COUNTY TREASURER SWORN IN .Still001

At 10 am Wednesday Montgomery County Judge Alan B. Sadler swore in Tammy J. McRae as Montgomery County’s newest Tax Assessor/Collector. Tammy will take over for J.R. Moore who is retiring after 28-years as Tax Assessor-Collector for Montgomery County. Tammy told the group present for the swearing-in that she knew she had some big shoes to fill but that she was going to do her best to do the job that J.R. did.

J.R. Moore said he is looking forward to his retirement and for the first time in 28-years to be able to watch New Years Eve fireworks, something he has been unable to do as they kept the office opens late New Years Eve to accommodate people who want to pay taxes and get ready for their income tax. That was the second busiest day of the year. He also plans to take a vacation and enjoy retirement. After 28-years of an early rise and being a farm boy, J.R. said his internal clock still has him on an early rise.

The Tax Assessor-Collector, elected by registered voters of Montgomery County for a four-year term, holds the Constitutional Office charged with duties and responsibilities mandated by State Statutes to assess and collect ad valorem tax accounts as identified and valued by the Montgomery Central Appraisal District. The office also collects property taxes for 69 of 77 other taxing jurisdictions (school districts, cities, and special districts).

The Montgomery County Tax Office also collects beer, wine, and liquor licensing fees, and occupational taxes relating to vending machine permits. Acting as an Agent for the State, all vehicle and trailer registration and titles are processed in this office for residents of the county.

In addition, on behalf of the County and other governing bodies, the Tax Assessor-Collector processes the resale of all “Tax Trust” property and processes all Tax Abatement Agreements and bi-annual reports to ensure that each party to the Agreement is in compliance with their Agreement and County policy.

The main Tax Office in Conroe, along with the four branch offices in Magnolia, Montgomery, New Caney, and The Woodlands, is open Monday through Friday (except holidays ) from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. There are also 24 motor vehicle substations located in grocery stores (see “Vehicle Registration, Substation Locations” for specifics) throughout Montgomery County; substations are normally open 7 days a week during the regular business hours of the merchants’ courtesy booths.
