How do I get the sales information used to value my property?
The Bastrop Central Appraisal District does not have access to all sales information due to Texas being a non-sales disclosure state. This means that real estate sales transactions are not given to the Appraisal District. We research all available data in the marketplace by contacting realtors, brokers, property sellers, and buyers to obtain sales information. We also receive sales information during the informal and formal protest period.
HB2188, Section 552.148, of the Texas Government Code prohibits Appraisal Districts from releasing sales information except for protest purposes to the property owner or his/her designated appointed agent, and only to be released as appeal evidence for the protested property.
“To provide quality service with the highest principles of integrity, professionalism, and respect. We will uphold these standards while providing an accurate, fair, and cost-effective appraisal roll for use in property tax assessment, while adhering to the property tax laws of the State of Texas.”
