Welcome to the Dallas Central Appraisal District (DCAD). This
website is provided to assist you in learning more about our agency and how it
can serve you. It is our goal to provide you with an understanding of how and
why we operate as we do and how you can resolve any issue that may arise. We
also hope that our users will find our website a source of useful information.
At this site you will find a great deal of information about
property located in the DCAD. We have attempted to make it as user-friendly as
possible. However, if you know a few things about a property for which you are
seeking information, you can expedite the search process. Account number is
always the best tool to use when searching a file. You can find your account
number on a tax statement you may have received from one of the entities taxing
your property or on any Notice of Appraised Value that you may have received
from our agency. If you do not have the account number, knowing the owner’s
name or correct address will usually suffice in locating a property. And with
the implementation of our new mass appraisal system, you can use our Geographic
Information System to search for an account by zooming in from a bird’s eye
view of the county.
In addition to property appraisal information, you will also
find pages that inform you about your taxpayer rights,
exemptions, how to negotiate
a value or exemption matter, hours of operation
of the DCAD, important dates and other information. Located on our site are
direct links to other local, state and national government sites.
Persons interested in employment
with the DCAD can find a list of open positions and information about
our agency. Those seeking telephone numbers, mailing
address and staff information can also find this data on our site.
We hope that you find our website both easy to use and informative. We will
continue to improve it and solicit your input concerning how this might best be
