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 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.
