Confidentiality for Current and Former Employees of a State Judge

SB 510, passed by the 85th Texas Legislature, adds the employees of state judges to the list of persons allowed to restrict public access of their residence address in tax appraisal records. Current and former employees of a state judge can request restricted public access of their home address. Current and former employees of a state judge should complete the Request for Confidentiality Under Tax Code Section 25.025 form and file it with the appraisal district office in the county in which the property is located.
