The Dallas Central Appraisal District appraises property in Dallas County to determine property values. This value is used by taxing entities, including Addison, in calculating your property taxes. Your property tax amount is calculated by taking the market value (as determined by the appraisal district) and subtracting any appropriate exemptions (granted by the appraisal district) to determine the taxable value, then multiplying this taxable value by each applicable taxing entity's tax rate. If you have questions about the appraisal process, value, exemptions, and protests visit DCAD's website at or call (214) 631-0910.
