Galveston County Tax Appraisal – 2021

A board of directors is the governing body of Galveston CAD. The members of the board are elected by the tax entities that make up Galveston County. These 41 tax entities, which are represented by the members, are schools, cities, the county, and other special districts. The board of directors is mostly responsible for two things: selecting the chief appraiser of Galveston CAD and approving the budget. It's $6 M for this county.

Who Represents You?

The board is meant to represent the interests of the tax entities. You can only really represent your own interests when you appeal your property taxes in front of Galveston CAD. Only about 30% of taxable value is protested every year. O'Connor can represent you through the Property Tax Protection Program™. It's free to enroll and you'll never pay a dime unless we succeed in lowering your taxes.
