Hidalgo County Appraisal District Employee Summary – 2021

As of 2021, the Hidalgo County Appraisal District employs 96 people, including 48 appraisers. Labor makes up most of their budget. Because of the high number of valuations, a lack of appraisers, and limited access to property other than aerial photography, appeals may be made based on the property description, valuation model, comparable sales, and assessments. There are over 349,061 parcels of real property that are valued each year by Hidalgo Central Appraisal District, which increased its budget from $6 M in 2013 to $9 M in 2021, a 42% increase. Over $44 M is saved each year by property tax appeals in Hidalgo County.

Have you received your share?

Only about 17% of homeowners appeal their property value each year. Commercial property owners appeal 70% of their value. Premium homeowners are more likely to appeal. O'Connor provides professional property tax consultants with no minimum value. The Property Tax Protection Program™ is free of flat fees and no up-front costs when you enroll. There will never be a fee unless we lower your property taxes.
