Appraisal district to allow online protests
Members of the Wilson County Appraisal District board Robert Gregory (l-r), David Deason, Frank Pruski, and Jim Yanta take the oath of office during the district’s Feb. 24 board meeting.
Beginning in April, taxpayers who own property in Wilson County will be able to protest their tax valuations online, as the Wilson County Appraisal District is applying the finishing touches to a new website. Chief Appraiser Brian Stahl delivered the news to the district’s board of directors at its Feb. 24 meeting.
Stahl said the procedure is being implemented in accordance with state law, which said the appraisal district had to begin the rollout in time for the 2014 tax year. Notices for properties determined to have increased in value will be mailed on or about April 1, he said.
The new website, www.wilson-cad.org, is under construction. When complete, Stahl said it will offer a link to property search data via trueautomation.com.
Also during the meeting, the board voted that its officers should remain the same.Frank Pruski will continue as president, while Scott Sisti will remain the vice president. The board’s secretary is Jim Yanta.
Sisti and Yanta also were appointed to the board’s building committee, while Robert Gregory and David Deason will serve on the budget committee.
Another appointment made during the meeting was to the appraisal review board, left open by the departure of Albert Keller. The board voted that Lester Lyssy would replace him.
In other news, Stahl informed the board that for a third year, the state comptroller’s office property-value study found all values for school districts within the Wilson County Appraisal District to be valid.
Also in attendance: Collections Manager Jo Ann Wiatrek, Assistant Chief Appraiser Jenny Coldewey, and Administrative Assistant Annette Pfeil.
