Full report in PDF format

  • The Property Tax Administration Program has taken steps to improve both its oversight of local taxing authorities and its processing of tax refund requests.
  • Although the program improved oversight of real property, the validity and reliability of the ratio studies of county property appraisers' assessments have yet to be determined.
  • The program should continue with its efforts to enhance oversight of tangible personal property, with the goal of conducting procedural audits of county property appraisers' activities.
