The appraisers do not dictate real property value. Each appraiser has certain areas within the county and the neighborhoods therein. They collect data, such as issued permits, recent sales transactions, and other essential information in order to insure equity in valuations. Property value assessment is necessary to establish a tax base for the county and to determine an equitable distribution of the tax burden.
If you feel your property is appraised above or below the market value, please click on the link located on the right to file an Informal Appeal with the county appraiser.
