2021 Property Reappraisal to begin in August

August 2020

Codi McCarn, Chief Appraiser of the Mills Central Appraisal District, announced that field work will begin in August on the designated area of the county scheduled for reappraisal for 2021. Employees of Western Valuation and Consulting, LLC, will be going through the north eastern part of Mills County, this includes properties east of Hwy 84/183 and north of Hwy 84, the town of Priddy, and communities of Democrat, Caradan, Center City and Star will all be part of the reappraisal.  The appraisers will be updating pictures and information on improvements in these areas.

The appraisers will have a sign on the side of their trucks showing that they are with the appraisal district and they will have photo identification.  If any taxpayer is concerned about their legitimacy, they should call the district office at 325-648-2253.  No appraiser will ever ask to come into anyone’s house.  If anyone represents themselves as employees of the district or contractors and asks to see the interior of a taxpayer’s home, they should be denied access and the taxpayer should call law enforcement.
