Bastrop Central Appraisal District’s top priority is the health and well-being of our employees and the property owners of Bastrop County.

For the district to be successful it is vital that our employees are available to assist and serve the needs of the public. 

We ask each customer who wishes to conduct business in person to wear a face cover.

Our office is open with limited public access.

  • Our doors will remain locked.
  • One customer admitted at a time.  Two individuals may come in together that represents one transaction.
  • Lobby limit is six.
  • The receptionist will log your visit.
  • You will be asked to wait in the lobby until a counter is available.
  • Only two at a counter at one time to include partner, interpreter, or child.
  • Receptionist will route you to the appropriate counter.
  • At the conclusion of business please check out with the receptionist.

Property owners can continue to do business with the office through points of contact by telephone or email.

In addition to assisting the public in person we are available to assist by the following ways:

  • Online: Property owners can find key information on our website.
  • Email: Property owners may submit applications by email. Bastrop CAD is not equipped to receive online filing of these applications. At this time, we require the applications be signed and attached to an email in a pdf format. We CAN NOT accept any other format other than pdf due to legibility of the documents. Any other format will be returned as unacceptable.
