Property Tax Liaison Officer 6.052

Section 6.052 – Taxpayer Liaison Officer

The board of directors for appraisal districts appoints the taxpayer liaison officer with a population of more than 125,000 people. This is the only person at the appraisal district office (other than the chief appraiser) who is not hired and supervised (directly or indirectly) by the chief appraiser.

The taxpayer liaison officer coordinates presentations by the public at the board of directors and complaints filed by the public.

The existence of the taxpayer liaison officer and option of filing complaints with the board of directors is not widely known to property owners or property tax consultants.
