Residents who need to conduct vehicle-related business with the San Marcos-area Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office may now visit the new Hays County Government Center at 712 South Stagecoach Trail in San Marcos.
Tax Office customers may conduct their business inside the Government Center or via a drive-through lane accessible from the back of the building on the east side.
“Because of the failure of the State of Texas contractor to meet the county’s deadline for the move to the new Government Center, the Motor Vehicle Division of the Hays County Tax Assessor-Collector wasn’t able to move to the new Government Center with the rest of the Tax Office,” said Laureen Chernow, Hays County spokesperson. “Now, all of the Tax Office’s divisions are again located in one place.”
The Tax Assessor-Collector’s other offices, located in Buda, Dripping Springs and Kyle, are also available to serve residents and businesses, Chernow said. More information about the Tax Assessor-Collector’s functions or the offices moving to the new Government Center may be found at www.co.hays.tx.us. The Tax Office can be reached by phone at (512) 393-5545.
During December, many San Marcos-area county offices are moving to the new Government Center. To find the center:

▪Take Hunter Road (FM 2439) to Wonder World Drive and turn east toward IH-35. At the bottom of the railroad track overpass, turn left and head north on South Stagecoach Trail. South Stagecoach Trail dead-ends at the Government Center. The address is not yet on some online maps.
