Mistaken tax notices sent out
Some notices of delinquent tax payments were mistakenly mailed to Cooke County residents due to database export errors at the Cooke County Appraisal District, collections supervisor Shelli Sweeten said this week.
A July 1 data export provided to delinquent tax attorneys contained some quarterly payment plan statuses that weren’t coded properly, Sweeten said, and the issue has since been fixed.
Installment payment agreements were also mistakenly included in the data export, she said.
Taxpayers who received a delinquent notice due to the errors are advised to disregard the notice.
