The duty of the assessor-collector is to assess (calculate) taxes on each property in the county and collect that tax, but the tax assess-collector does not appraise property. That function is performed by the Appraisal District, which is not part of county government. On behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation, the assessor-collector also is responsible for the registration and licensing of motor vehicles owned by residents of the county.
The county tax assessor-collector is also responsible for the collections of special fees imposed by the county and state on coin-operated vending machines, alcoholic beverage permits and registration and titling boats.
