Welcome to the Morris County Appraisal District Website
Our mission is to provide accurate property assessments to facilitate the local funding for our county, schools, cities, and other districts that derive budgets and other operating expenses from local property values.
The Morris County Appraisal District appraises property for ad valorem taxation of these taxing authorities.
Tax rates and ultimately the amount of taxes levied on property are determined by governing bodies of each of the taxing authorities.
Mineral, utility and industrial accounts are appraised for the district by Pritchard & Abbott, Inc. in Henderson, Texas.
Real estate and personal property accounts are appraised locally by the district.
