The Board of Directors Role in the Property Tax System
The local property tax system follows the principle of checks and balances. The appraisal district is governed by a board of directors. An appraisal district board of directors hires the chief appraiser, sets the budget and appoints the appraisal review board members. 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. Five directors are appointed by the taxing units that participate in the district. To be eligible to serve on the board of directors and individual must be a resident of the district and must have resided in the district for at least two (2) years immediately preceding the date the individual takes office.
Appraisal District Board of Directors meet most every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 5:00 pm.
