The Harris County Tax Office will host a series of town hall meetings to help residents get the services they need more easily.

“Most of the adult residents of Harris County deal with my office every year,” said Leo Vasquez, the Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar. “We collect property taxes, handle vehicle registrations and license plates and register voters.

“We want to get out into the communities and tell our customers about our services that are available via mail, telephone and the Internet or even at about 200 grocery stores. We’ve stressed ‘Get online, not in line’ for years. However, too many people still choose to come to our 16 locations when they could conduct their business more conveniently.”

The Precinct 2 meeting will be held on January 20 from 7-9 p.m. at Grayson/ Baldree Community Center, 13828 Corpus Christi in the Cloverleaf area in Precinct 2, Commissioner Sylvia Garcia’s precinct.

The Precinct 4 meeting will be held on January 27 from 7-9 p.m. in the May Community Center, 2100 Wolf Road, Huffman in Precinct 4, Commissioner Jerry Eversole’s precinct.

The Precinct 3 meeting will be held on February 3, from 7-9 p.m. in the Bayland Park Community Center, 6400 Bissonnet St., Houston in Precinct 3, Commissioner Steve Radack’s precinct.

At each meeting, Vasquez will describe the operations of the office. Then he and members of the office’s Community Outreach team will answer questions and help residents solve some problems. Most of the necessary forms will be available. Help will be available in English and in Spanish.
