The entire county is reviewed annually, adjustments or modifications are made where necessary based on available sales information.
The appraisers look at similar sales in the area, condition of the property and any additions or improvements that have been made.
An improvement can be anything built on raw land, such as a building, structure, pool, patio, driveway, asphalt parking lot or fence on or attached to the land; and even a transportable structure that is designed to be occupied for residential or business purposes. Unless the transportable structure is unoccupied, for sale or is on the land only temporarily.
There are exemptions available for residential homesteads, over-65 (seniors), over-55 surviving spouse, disabled persons, disabled veterans, religious properties, historical properties, government properties, and Freeport exemptions.
Most of these exemptions only need to be applied for once, however, a new application is needed if there is a change in the ownership, change in residency, if one of the spouses passes away, or the chief appraisor requests one.
