Appraisal Districts

Appraisal Districts MapTexas state law is to appraise and determine fair market values on property for tax assessment purposes. 

The city, county, and school districts are allowed to tax the same property, instead of having all three of these perform an appraisal function. The central Appraisal District appraises the property uniformly, collects the entire tax and allocates the tax to each government entity in accordance with said entity’s rate.
