How is my property value determined?

The Central Appraisal District is responsible for determining the value of all real and business personal property within its jurisdiction. If your property is located in the Travis County, the Travis Central Appraisal District determines your property value; if your property is located within the Williamson County, the Williamson Central Appraisal District appraises your property value. Despite the name of your appraisal district, it is an entity independent of the County or any other taxing jurisdiction, and your respective appraisal district appraises property according to the Texas Property Tax Code and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP). The Central Appraisal District then sends its appraisal of your property valued to your County Tax Assessor-Collector.
