Welcome to the Montgomery Central Appraisal District. In the past five years, we have experienced a 31.4 % growth and were recently listed in one article as the #6 Boom Town, with no signs of slowing down soon. With this growth, the Central Appraisal district is focused on our own growth, partnering with the community with a focus on people, technology, and customer experience.
I took on the role of Chief Appraiser in December of 2022. Since that time, I’m proud of the progress the team has made, and we have more to come. My goal is to build a district office that can meet the demands of future county growth, all while keeping service to you, our customers as our mission.
Our task is to envision MCAD in the future by describing the accomplishments or significant works in progress we want to achieve 5 to 10 years from now. We’re looking at the drivers that are pushing us toward that future vision and the barriers that are restraining us. The top three target areas that emerged from this effort are: People, Technology and Customer Experience. To succeed, we must invest. Without it, we will not be able to attract talent, retain employees, leverage technology, and provide world class customer service to our property owners.
Please be aware that Notices of Appraised Values have been sent to parts of the County on March 20th while the remaining will be mailed on April 13. Montgomery county has experienced at 10 to 18 percent increase in the real estate market while some areas experienced a higher increase in valuations. We do understand and emphasize our community members who have expressed concerns about property valuations. To give our residents insight into how property is appraised, we’re holding our 2nd Annual Property Tax Workshops with the Montgomery County Tax Office to assist you with any concerns you may have. Please visit our website at www.mcad-tx.org/publicdata/workshops for dates and times.
We encourage you to file a protest to dispute and discuss your property valuation if you disagree. The deadline is May 15. We are encouraging property owners to file their protest online (instead of mailing) as soon as possible, instead of waiting until the deadline date. This will help us to streamline the process, provide updates, and you to be able to discuss your valuations sooner.
One of the most important steps in becoming the best district in the state is our community. We need to hear from you on ways to improve and services that can help make your experience a memorable one. You can contact us at 936-756-3354.
I look forward to hearing from you and accomplishing our goals together!
