Galveston County Appraisal District Employee Summary – 2021

The most expensive part of the Galveston CAD budget is labor. They employ 50 employees and only 16 appraisers. Even though their budget increased 39% between 2013 and 2021 from $4 M to $6 M, they still have 197,013 tax parcels to value every year. They don't have enough time or resources to fully inspect every property, so they resort to mass appraisals and aerial photography. That gives you an opportunity to appeal on the basis of their methods or inaccuracies. These appeals have saved property owners in the county over $113 M every year.
