In this fifth and final entry on property taxes, I want to talk about where we get our information from regarding our property tax values. Until this year, EISD received all of the property value information from the Henderson County Appraisal District. Even though we had a few properties in Van Zandt County, all of the property information came through Henderson County.
Starting with this tax year, changes in the law governing appraisal districts now require information concerning property values to come from the appraisal district that actually contains the property. Now, EISD receives information on the properties in the district from both Henderson County and Van Zandt County. These numbers are then totaled together to give us the figures required to fill out the necessary forms from the comptroller’s office.
I want to state that both the Henderson County Appraisal District and the Van Zandt County Appraisal District have gone above and beyond in helping EISD understand and use the property values furnished from their offices. Without the help of these two appraisal districts, obtaining and entering the necessary information for calculating the required figures would be much more time consuming and complicated for the district.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
