“To provide accurate and uniform appraisals based on the local market, conducted in a fair and professional environment with an emphasis on customer service.”
Within this site you will find general information about the District and the ad valorem property tax system in Texas, as well as information regarding specific properties within the district. Coryell Central Appraisal District is responsible for local property tax appraisal and exemption administration for 18 jurisdictions (taxing units) within Coryell County, Texas. The district appraises property according to the Texas Property Tax Code and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP).
Each taxing unit, such as the county, a city, school district, municipal utility district, etc., sets its own tax rate to generate revenue to pay for such things as police and fire protection, public schools, road and street maintenance, courts, water and sewer systems, and other public services. Appraisals established by Coryell CAD allocate the year’s tax burden on the basis of each taxable property’s January 1st market value.
The Appraisal District’s primary responsibility is to develop an annual appraisal roll for use by taxing units in imposing ad valorem taxes on property in the district. Coryell CAD is governed by the Board of Directors, who is primarily responsible for the hiring of the Chief Appraiser as well as approving the annual budget.
It is not the responsibility of Coryell CAD to establish tax rates or collect property taxes.
