Brazoria County Appraisal District

Lawmakers created appraisal districts to keep the process of appraising your property separate from the process of levying a tax. We give each local taxing jurisdiction (city, county, school district, utility district, etc.) a list of taxable property, together with the taxable value of each property. The taxing jurisdiction then decides, based on that list, how much tax to levy. The jurisdiction then sends bills and collects the taxes.

To compile each year’s list (the appraisal roll), the appraisal district performs three basic activities:

  1. Identifying taxable property and maintaining current records reflecting its ownership and characteristics.
  2. Determining the property’s market value as of January 1 of the tax year.
  3. Deciding whether any exemptions apply to the property and recording these exemptions appropriately.

The appraisal process is designed to help assure that each property owner pays no more than a fair share of the costs associated with providing those public services that everyone enjoys.
