The local property tax system follows the principle of checks and balances. An appraisal district 
board of directors hires the chief appraiser and sets the budget. 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.
