Welcome to the Coryell Central Appraisal District!

Within this site you will find general information about the District and the ad valorem property tax system in Texas, as well as information regarding specific properties within the district. Coryell Central Appraisal District is responsible for local property tax appraisal and exemption administration for 19 jurisdictions (taxing units) within Coryell County, Texas. The district appraises property according to the Texas Property Tax Code and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP).

Each taxing unit, such as the county, a city, school district, municipal utility district, etc., sets its own tax rate to generate revenue to pay for such things as police and fire protection, public schools, road and street maintenance, courts, water and sewer systems, and other public services. Appraisals established by Coryell CAD allocate the year’s tax burden on the basis of each taxable property’s January 1st market value.

The Appraisal District’s primary responsibility is to develop an annual appraisal roll for use by taxing units in imposing ad valorem taxes on property in the district. Coryell CAD is governed by the Board of Directors, who is primarily responsible for the hiring of the Chief Appraiser as well as approving the annual budget.


It is not the responsibility of Coryell CAD to establish tax rates or collect property taxes. For questions concerning tax payments and taxes due please visit the Coryell County Tax Office website at coryellcountytax.com or call the Coryell County Collector/Assessor at 254-248-3142.


Coryell Central Appraisal District offices are open for limited interaction with property owners. The lobby is open to allow for property owners to drop off any correspondence or get application forms and assistance.
Appraisers are not conducting face-to-face meetings. The Coryell CAD still encourages property owners to contact us via phone call or email located under “Contact Information” on the right side of the web page. Homesteads, Agriculture & Business Rendition forms can all be filed online by clicking the online forms button at the top of this web page.  Thank you for your help in maintaining the health of Coryell County property owners.

“Homestead Designation Services” is not affiliated with the Coryell Central Appraisal District. This letter was NOT sent by our office and has no bearing on your property tax homestead exemption.
