The Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) is responsible for discovering and appraising property for ad valorem tax purposes within the boundaries of Harris County. As a separate political subdivision of the State of Texas, HCAD serves over 500 local taxing jurisdictions. In addition to appraising various classes of property, the district also maintains accurate property records and determines exemptions that apply to local properties.

Producing short videos is one of HCAD’s latest initiatives designed to help explain the district’s role in the Texas property tax system, our operations and programs, and to provide information on various appraisal-related topics.

The videos are listed below. When you click on one of the video buttons you will be taken to a page with the video, a brief description of the subject matter, and the text from the video. To return to this page, either press the “back” button or click on the “videos” link at the top of the HCAD website.
