FAQs - General Information
How often is the website updated?
Our website is for reference only and may not reflect the most current information available. Current tax year information is updated after notices of appraised value are mailed to the taxpayer, usually by May 1st, and continues to be updated nightly.
How do I search by property address? Why is there a “No Match” response when I enter the correct address?
If you are uncertain as to how the property address should be entered, you should broaden your search by entering less information. We now offer an advanced search which is free of charge. If you are still unable to find a solution, you may email our records management department and someone will provide you with an account number.

How do I request confidentiality under Section 25.025 of the Tax Code?
You may download the “Request for Confidentiality” form from our forms page. Send your completed form to: Travis Central Appraisal District, Records Management Officer, PO Box 149012, Austin TX 78714-9012. If you own more than one property, please provide each property address to ensure confidentiality. TCAD records will be promptly updated to reflect confidentiality; however, it may take 2-3 weeks before the website reflects the confidentiality.
How do I read and/or print Plat maps?
Maps are provided in .pdf format. Because each internet user has their own PC and software configurations, we can not troubleshoot any issues an individual user may encounter. If you are unable to open the .pdf file, you should verify that you are using a current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader
