Scam Alert: Tax Lien Lenders

Many Wichita County taxpayers have been receiving solicitations from false tax lien lenders offering to pay property taxes.

These tax lien lenders have indicated that they are contacting local taxpayers at the request of the Wichita County Tax Collector.  However, that is not true.

The Wichita County Tax Office has received numerous open records requests for the current and delinquent tax rolls.  Under the Texas Public Information Act, the tax office has no choice but to provide this information, as both the current and delinquent tax rolls are public records.  The Wichita County Tax Office has no control over how this information is used by the recipient.

Any taxpayer that would like to discuss entering into a payment plan should contact the Wichita County Tax Collector's office at (940)766-820.
