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.
