Property Tax Exemption For Winter Storm Damage


On Friday, February 12, 2021 Governor Greg Abbott issued a Disaster Declaration in response to severe winter weather in Texas. This declaration enables property owners in Collin County to file for a temporary property tax exemption under Section 11.35 of the Texas Property Tax Code for qualified property damaged by the disaster. In an area declared a disaster area by the Governor, Tax Code Section 11.35 allows a qualified property that is at least 15 percent damaged by a disaster to receive a temporary exemption of a portion of the appraised value of the qualified property. A property owner must apply for the temporary exemption, and the deadline for application is 105 days after the Governor declares a disaster area. The deadline for filing the 2021 application for exemption is May 28, 2021. You can mail your application to the Collin Central Appraisal District, 250 Eldorado Pkwy., McKinney 75069 or via email to

Collin County Announces Vaccine Partnership with Local Cities

Collin County has launched a new cooperative partnership with the Town of Fairview and several other local cities to assist in COVID-19 vaccine registration and distribution. The Town will not be administering vaccines to the public. The Town of Fairview, like many small and mid-sized cities, does not have the staffing or resources required to provide COVID-19 vaccines to the public. The Town is supporting Collin County’s efforts by promoting their COVID-19 vaccine wait list webpage.

Only Collin County residents who meet Texas Department of State Health Services Phase 1A or 1B criteria and vaccine specific minimum age requirement can register at this time. The online registration form will take requests in the order received, let the registrant know where they are in line for the vaccine, then notify them when vaccines become available from Collin County’s health department and schedule appointments.

In a recent Collin County news release, individuals were encouraged to contact their primary health care provider and their local pharmacy to inquire about additional vaccine availability because of the limited volume of vaccines available. Most private health care providers (pharmacies, hospitals, physicians) maintain their own vaccine waitlists separate from the Collin County wait list.

Visit the Collin County COVID-19 vaccine information webpage to sign up.
