A common question I get from clients, specifically first responders is, "How do I hide my name and address from the Bexar County Appraisal District website?"  If you're a police officer, corrections officer, etc - you more than likely don't want someone you've had a negative interaction with be able to look up your address just by searching your name.  The request or document you're looking for is called a request for confidentiality (click HERE for a fillable PDF file for all Texas counties).

By filling out this form and sending it in (after meeting the below requirements/qualifications) to the county government, they will remove your name, address, and other information from public view on the Bexar County Appraisal District website.  I recommend anyone that is eligible to have this confidentiality do so - it only makes things safer!

When you submit this request for confidentiality you have to meet certain qualifications.  The qualified circumstances or positions are:

  • Peace/Police Officer (current or former)
  • County Jailer
  • Commissioned Security Officer
  • Employee of the Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice
  • Victim of Family Violence
  • Officer or Employee of a Community Supervision and Corrections Department
  • Federal Judge
  • Spouse of a Federal Judge
  • State Judge
  • Spouse of a State Judge
  • Employee (current or former) of District Attorney
  • Employee (current or former) of Criminal District Attorney
  • Employee (current or former) of County Attorney
  • Employee (current or former) of Municipal Attorney
  • Employee (current or former) of Attorney General
  • United States Attorney (current or former)
  • Spouse of current or former United States Attorney
  • Child of current or former United States Attorney
  • Assistant United States Attorney (current or former)
  • Spouse of current or former Assistant United States Attorney
  • Child of current or former Assistant United States Attorney
  • Criminal Investigator of the United States
  • Police Officer or Inspector of the United States Federal Protective Service
  • Members (current or former) of the United States Armed Forces
  • Medical Examiner

It takes five minutes to complete and send in this form, don't let forgetting to complete this form affect your family's safety!
