For the sixth year in a row, the Grayson County Tax Office is offering a special one-day service.


Taxpayers will be able to drop off property tax payments on Thursday from the convenience of their car. Tax office personnel will be stationed at the Grayson County Courthouse’s west entrance parking lot on Crockett Street in Sherman from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


“We’ve made it a little easier for folks to pay their property taxes,” Grayson County Tax Assessor-Collector Bruce Stidham said. “This is the sixth year we’ve provided the drive-thru service and each year more and more people are taking advantage of the convenience. Instead of having to search for a place to park, then waiting in line to pay your taxes, we’ve made it easier for taxpayers by giving folks the opportunity to stay in their car and drop their payment off at our drive-thru location. It’s easy and it’s quick.”


He said drivers should look for the flags at the north drive-thru entrance of the parking lot and exit at the south end, back onto Crockett Street.


Those choosing to use the drive-thru service shouldn’t bring cash. Tax Office personnel will only be accepting checks or money orders at the drive-thru location. All payments made at the drive-thru must be in a sealed envelope with a return address clearly visible. Actual receipts for payments will be mailed the following week.


“We’ll be there, come rain or shine,” Stidham said.
