    What We Do
    Our Mission: "Courtesy & Efficiency"

    Cameron Appraisal District (CAD) is responsible for appraising property for the purpose of ad valorem property tax assessment on behalf of the local governing bodies in Cameron County. The appraisal district is a political subdivision of the State of Texas.
    Our duties include establishing and maintaining accurate property values for all real and business personal property. The Texas Property Tax Code is the primary source of law and guidance for the Texas property tax system.
    This website is for informational purposes only. Title research should be performed at the appropriate County Clerk's office. This is not deemed a legal document.

    The C.A.D. does not levy taxes, set the tax rate or collect any taxes. The appraisal district does not capture the amount of taxes on each property. Please contact your appropriate tax office for that information.
