All Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector offices will have drop-off boxes for your convenience. Customers dropping off payments must be in a check paid to Ann Harris Bennett.

For vehicle registrations, whether out-of-state or vehicle transfers, all paperwork and payment must be mailed to the Downtown office. The address is: P.O. Box 4089, Houston, TX 77210.

Required forms such as proof of insurance, completed inspection and Form 130-U must be attached when mailing or dropping off.
