My name is Sharon Robinson and I officially filed for re-election for Tax Assessor-Collector on Friday, November 8, 2019.    

     I will begin my 28th year in the Jack County Tax Office in December. I started as a deputy clerk in December 1992, became chief deputy in 2001 and have been the Tax Assessor-Collector since 2006.

     My education remains in compliance each year with TACA (Tax Assessor-Collectors Association) by taking classes and seminars and providing proof of certification to the Jack County Commissioner’s Court, as required by law.
       I was born and raised in Wichita Falls, TX and was an honor graduate at Rider High School. My husband’s career with Halliburton brought us to Jacksboro in 1978 and we have made Jacksboro our home ever since. We have 3 grown children and 6 beautiful grandchildren, who are the light of our lives.
     There have been many changes in the state requirements of our office in the last 27 years. I am fortunate to work with a great group of ladies that are wonderful co-workers. My staff and I strive to keep up to date on all the current information, policies, and procedures. We do our best to make those changes as smooth as possible for the public. We always go above and beyond in customer service and do everything we can to assist the customer, within the limits of the law.
     I have really enjoyed my career with Jack County over the past 27 years and would like to continue providing the same exceptional customer service that has been provided during those years by our office. Your continued support will be greatly appreciated in the upcoming election.
