Welcome to San Jacinto County Appraisal District!

Reappraisal Time of Year

The San Jacinto County Appraisal District has field appraisers currently out in all areas the County. They are gathering data, measuring, and taking new photos of properties. They are practicing social distancing. The appraisers will have signs on their vehicles clearly visible so that taxpayers can easily identify them.  Also, our appraisers carry photo identification for verification purposes.  Please do not hesitate to ask for their credentials or contact this office at 936-653-1450. If you find a bright green tag attached to your gate or fence, please call as soon as possible to ensure that the data collected is correct.

If your property is currently under new construction, please advise our office so that a field inspection can be scheduled.  Also, if you recently purchased and reside in the home as your primary residence you may qualify for a homestead exemption, therefore reducing your tax liability.  The homestead exemption form can be obtained from our website, the Texas Comptroller’s website, or in our office.  If applying for a homestead be aware that your driver’s license must match the physical address of your property.


The duties of the appraisal district include:

  • The determination of market value of taxable property
  • The administration of exemptions and special valuations authorized by the local entities and the State of Texas
  • Tax rates and ultimately the amount of taxes levied on property are determined by governing bodies of each of the taxing authorities

This website is provided to assist you in learning more about our agency and how it can serve you. It is our goal to provide you with an understanding of how and why we operate as we do and how you can resolve any issue that may arise. We also hope that our users will find our website a source of useful information.

At this site you will find a great deal of information about property located in the SJCAD. We have attempted to make it as user-friendly as possible. However, if you know a few things about a property for which you are seeking information, you can expedite the search process. Account number is always the best tool to use when searching a file. You can find your account number on a tax statement you may have received from one of the entities taxing your property or on any Notice of Appraised Value that you may have received from our agency. If you do not have the account number, knowing the owner’s name or correct address will usually suffice in locating a property.

In addition to property appraisal information, you will also find pages that inform you about your taxpayer rights, exemptions, how to negotiate a value or exemption matter, important dates and other information. Located on our site are links to other local, state and national government sites.

Persons interested in employment with the SJCAD can find a list of open positions and information about our agency. Those seeking telephone numbers, mailing address and staff information can also find this data on our site.

We hope that you find our website both easy to use and informative. We will continue to improve it and solicit your input concerning how this might best be achieved.
