The Appraisal District 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.  The members of the board of directors are elected by the participating taxing units.  The board is responsible for the hiring of the chief appraiser and sets the appraisal district 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.
