I am pleased to present the 2004-2005 Appraisal District Operations Report that is based on information provided by Texas’ county appraisal districts (CADs). For the first time this year the full details for each of the CADs are not included in this printed report. The full details reported by each CAD are being made available on my Property Tax Division’s Web site at www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/proptax/index.html. Should you need a hardcopy of this detailed information, please contact my Property Tax Division by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 1-800-252-9121, or direct in Austin at 512/305-9999.
I want to personally thank each district for devoting its valuable time and expertise to this report each year and working with us to create this exceptional reference. The Operations Survey completed by the districts helps my agency answer questions and provide a general statistical database and reference frame for appraisal district operations.
There is no level of government closer to the people and more in tune with their daily needs and concerns than you who are at the local level. I benefited tremendously from my years in local government as school board president and as mayor. I salute you for your efforts on behalf of the citizens of Texas.
Please know that I welcome your good advice at any time. Thanks for all that you do for Texas.
