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, 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.

The HCAD Board regularly meets at 12:00 noon on the second Tuesday of each month. If you plan to attend we ask that please call to verify date and time of meeting. Meetings are held in the boardroom of the appraisal district, located at 1103 Houston Street.
