Welcome to Camp Central Appraisal District

The 2023 Appraisal Notices for real estate property were mailed Friday May 5th. This mailing date is a few days earlier than the 2022 mailing date of May 9th. The notices for business personal property will be mailed on May 16th. The last day to protest 2023 values is as follows:

                                     Mineral property – May 26th

                                     Industrial property – June 2nd

                                     Real estate property – June 5th

                                     Business Personal Property – June 15th

The ARB will begin protest hearings by appointment on June 13th. Camp County’s total overall market value is up 18.14%, with single-family residential values increasing 22%, vacant land values increasing 20%, and commercial values increasing 15.2%.  While the volume of home sales may have decreased over the past few months, prices of homes are continuing to rise. The average market value of a home increased from $172,886 in 2022 to $196,137 in 2023. I encourage you to call or come in and talk with an Appraiser about your value before you submit a protest.  This informal meeting will ensure all exemptions or special valuations have been applied, or give us information concerning changes to your property we weren’t aware of at the time of appraisal notices.  Please keep in mind all calls will be returned in the order they are received.  We will do our best to return your call within the same day if possible.  We ask that you please be understanding and patient during this busy time and rest assured we will get back to you.

Please be aware….the 2023 appraisal notice will not include an estimate of taxes again this year as allowed by Senate Bill 2 of the 2019 Legislative Session – effective January 1, 2022. You may calculate an estimated amount by multiplying the taxable value by the previous year’s tax rate and dividing the product by 100. For example: $123,000 x .5678 = 69,838.40 / 100 = $698.39  estimated tax amount $698.39.

You may go to our website campcad.org, under property search, and print a copy of your appraisal notice at any time. After you’ve searched for your property and have the property details displayed, follow the prompt just above the map to print the notice.

As always, my door is open if you have questions or concerns.  Jan Tinsley, Chief Appraiser
