Are you new to Texas? Welcome! Don't forget to register your boat no more than 90 days after your move.

Did you recently move? Moving can be stressful, and things sometimes fall through the cracks. To make the address update process easy we have two ways to assist. The first way you can update your address is by using the change of address form found here. The second way is by writing a letter that includes your water vessel's  TX/identification/hull number, new mailing address and your signature. The change of address form or change of address letter must be mailed to any of the Fort Bend County Tax Offices.
