Texans Need Elected County Appraisers

6 July 2008 at 1:10:47 PM

Elected Appraisers Needed:

  • Chief appraisers and members of the appraisal district board of directors and appraisal review board (ARB) are not elected and directly accountable to taxpayers. Therefore, taxpayers do not have a specific elected official to turn to who oversees appraisal district actions.
  • Tax assessor collectors are elected but generally have no role in the appraisal process.
  • The five member board of directors is appointed by the taxing units in the county. They appoint the chief appraiser but do not get involved in appraisal issues. This is the job of the ARB which is appointed by the board of directors. No appraisal or real estate expertise is needed to serve on the ARB.
  • A solution could be to establish a new appraisal certification board to sign off on certified appraised values each year. Or the chief appraiser job could be done by the tax assessors instead since they are elected (this also would eliminate the cost of a top employee job).

Most people do not realize that the CAD office is monitored by the BTPE (Board of Tax Professional Examiners) as well as the State Comptrollers office.  There are also licensed (registered through BTPE) tax assessor collectors in the CAD office.
