The AG Advisory Board’s Role in the Property Tax System

Sec. 6.12 of the Texas’s Property Tax Code, requires chief appraisers to appoint an agricultural appraisal advisory board. The legislature created this advisory board to help improve communications between the farming and ranching community and the appraisal district. Permanently retain an agricultural appraisal advisory board. The board’s purpose is to advise the chief appraiser on the appraisal and use of agricultural land.

Ag boards must have three members and meets one time annually at the call of the chief appraiser, as required in Tax Code Section 6.12. By appointing the required Ag board and conducting the required annual meeting the board and chief appraiser support the CAD in improving its appraisal and classification of agricultural land.
