As a lifelong resident of Burleson, Scott is a native of Johnson County. He attended Texas Christian University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics.
Scott was sworn in as Johnson County Tax Assessor–Collector on October 1, 2002. Prior to being sworn into office, he was the Chief Deputy at the Johnson County Tax Office.
He is a Registered Texas Assessor-Collector (RTA), having attained his certification with the Board of Tax Professional Examiners.
Scott has focused on customer service and convenience as well as the use of technology to provide a tax office that is user friendly. He also strives to provide a tax office that is responsive, efficient and cost effective for the residents of Johnson County.
Since taking office, Scott has brought many new ideas and services, some of which include accepting credit card transactions, internet vehicle registration, as well as an interactive website which allows the tax office to extend information and services to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Scott also brought boat registration and titling to the tax office. As an agent for Texas Parks & Wildlife, Johnson County residents are now able to register and title their boats at any of the three tax office locations. Before this service was offered, residents had to travel to Ft Worth or Waco to reach the nearest TP&W field office.
Scott and his wife, Melanie, are proud parents of their two children, Dylan and Ashlynn and attend First United Methodist Church of Burleson. He is actively involved in his community where he is a Vice President of the Lion’s Club and also serves on the Salvation Army advisory board.
