Join TCAD?

Monday, September 24, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

The city of Austin and Austin Independent School District are seeking applicants to fill two open seats on the board of directors for the Travis Central Appraisal District. That board’s primary responsibility is developing the annual appraisal roll used by local taxing units in imposing ad valorem property taxes in the district. The city and school district have a shared seat that is open on the board and AISD has another open seat of its own that is open. Applications for the two seats are available here and here. Other responsibilities of the board, which meets the first Monday of each month, include hiring the chief appraiser and approving the annual budget for the appraisal district and setting all TCAD policies. The applications are open until Sept. 28.
