HISTORY OF THE APPRAISAL DISTRICT

The appraisal districts were established by the 66th Legislature in 1979 enacted by
Section 6 of the Texas Property Tax Code requiring that a centralized agency be
established in each county for the purpose of appraising property for ad valorem tax
purposes. These agencies were organized to ensure that property taxation was fair
and equitable as well as accurate. By law, an appraisal district is to be managed by a
professional staff having training and education prescribed by the State of Texas.
Also a Tax Code was written that prescribed appraisal standards and appeal
procedures and ensured regular review of each appraisal district by a state agency.

The function of the appraisal district is to mass appraise real and personal property
at market value for the taxing entities of the county.  This would ensure that only
one value was placed on a property for each entity that had jurisdiction to tax that
particular property.

The Shelby County Appraisal District office was opened in 1980.  The first appraisal
roll was printed in 1982.  The information was gathered from various resources
including the tax rolls from the taxing entities of the county.
