The Appraisal District Board of Directors Role in the Property Tax System
The local property tax system follows the principle of checks and balances. An appraisal district board of directors establish the appraisal district office, hire a chief appraiser, have board meeting at least once each calendar quarter and adopt the CAD's annual operating budget before Sept. 15th after fulfilling notice requirements and holding a public hearing.
The directors have no authority to set values or appraisal methods. The chief appraiser carries out the appraisal district's legal duties, hires the staff, makes the appraisals and operates the appraisal office.
The board of director's meeting is held at the appraisal district every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 4:00 pm, if needed.
