It's incredible, they are raising the value of our home the maximum 10%. How can they justify that with all the foreclosures and homes for sale that sit there for months.

The Denton County Central Appraisal District website includes a FAQ section which answers the question you pose regarding how the boards and staff are appointed. The Chief Appraiser is
Joe Rogers (940)349-3800.

Iíve included several of the answers below that are available on their website:

Who governs a local county appraisal district?

A local board of directors governs the appraisal district.

How are the Directors chosen?

The governing bodies of taxing units that vote on the appraisal district's budget (county, city, school and some conservation and reclamation districts) select the appraisal district's directors. If the governing bodies do not select the county tax assessor-collector as a director, the county tax assessor-collector (if he or she collects the county's taxes) serves as a non-voting director.

What qualifications must an individual meet to serve on the appraisal review board?

An individual must be a resident of the district for two or more years before taking office. No special requirements are necessary. An individual may not serve if he or she is an appraisal district director or an employee or officer of an appraisal district, tax office or Comptroller's office. Also, an individual is ineligible to serve in counties having a population of more than 100,000 until the fourth anniversary of the date the person ceased to serve as a member or officer of taxing unit for which the appraisal district appraises property or if the person has ever appeared before the review board for compensation. Finally, an individual cannot serve if he or she is closely related (second degree by blood or marriage) to an individual paid as a tax agent or is in the business of appraising property for tax purposes in the appraisal district.

How are appraisal review board (ARB) members appointed?

The board of directors of each appraisal district appoints the review board members.
