The Appraisal District is a government entity setup by the 1979 Legislature under Senate Bill 621 to simplify and streamline the ad valorem tax process in the State of Texas. By combining the functions of appraisal into one office, the equality of taxation has become more uniform across the County.
The major responsibility facing our office at the moment is the fair and accurate appraisal of homes, businesses and raw land parcels throughout the county. The law charges us with appraising all the above property at market values. To do an effective job, we need to check the information that we have gathered against the most current sales of property in the county. Deed records filed at the County Clerk’s office show that you may have recently sold property. If you did, we would like to request your assistance in providing us with information.
Below is a questionnaire about the sale of your property. It will be greatly appreciated if you will fill out this questionnaire and return it to us. We have estimated the value of your property and the information you submit will be checked against the value ranges estimated for property in your neighborhood. This will give us an indication of the accuracy of our data and allow us time to adjust the value range of properties if it is not correct. With current costs of available financing, property value trends are in the process of change and we need to keep abreast of these to be accurate as possible. if you have any questions, please contact our office at 979-774-4100
