Harris County Appraisal District Employee Summary – 2021

Harris County Appraisal District (Harris CAD) expenses are primarily labor. Harris County Appraisal District has a total of 662 employees, including 305 appraisers as of 2021. The Harris CAD budget increased from $64 million in 2013 to $93 million in 2021, a 44% increase. However, they have over 1,871,842 tax parcels to value annually, and that is just real property. With so many valuations, so few appraisers and limited ability to inspect property other than via aerial photography, there are opportunities to appeal the property description and or valuation model or comparable sales or assessment comparables. Property tax appeals save Harris County owners over $662 MM annually.

Are You Getting Your Share?

Large commercial property owners appeal 88% of the property value annually. They do this because it has proven successful over the last 40+ years since Harris CAD was established (around 1980). Only about 39% of home owners appeal, with high value home owners more likely to appeal. There is no minimum value to access a professional property tax consultant with O'Connor.
