Open Records

Collin Central Appraisal District
Request for Information under Texas Public Information Act
Texas Government Code, Chapter 552

The Texas Public Information Act allows the public the right to access government information. All persons who request information must do so in writing. They must submit a written request that includes enough description and details of the information; also allowing the governmental body to accurately identify and locate the information which you are requesting. The request must be for records or information that already exists. The Public Information Act does not require a governmental body to create new records, perform legal research or to answer questions. The requestor may ask to inspect records, obtain copies of records or both. Although most government information is available under the Act, some exceptions exist.

Effective June 18, 2007, (in accordance with Subchapter A, Chapter 552.149, Government Code), sales information is no longer considered open records. However, evidence requested under Section 41.461 (a) (2), Texas Property Tax Code, for Appraisal Review Board hearings, must be disclosed.

Notice: Collin Central Appraisal District may require a payment for this request in accordance with Texas Property Tax Code and Government Code Chapter 552. If your request requires a fee, it will not be processed until the payment is received.
