The Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation is asking appraisal districts and property taxing entities to review and update their listings of employees. Verify your list of employees on TDLR’s Property Tax Professional Renewal Status Search page. This page provides the Chief Appraisal District’s (CAD) organization ID number which is to be used in the Change of Employment Notification form.

You do not need to do anything if the listing of employees is correct. If an employee is not listed on the CAD list, please complete the Change of Employment Notification form and send it to TDLR. If an employee is listed but is no longer working at the CAD, you should notify us of the employee’s status. Email is preferred but if you want to mail the form or notification of your employee changes to us, please use the address at the bottom of this notice.

Individual Property Tax Professional (PTP) registrants should verify and update their personal contact information by going to the License Contact Information Changing Site. Keeping this information current is important for TDLR to communicate with the PTP registrant.

Tax Professionals Chief Appraisers - Beginning January 1, 2015, all Chief Appraisers must have completed a Chief Appraiser’s Ethics continuing education course in order to renew their Appraiser (RPA) registration. Property tax professionals may review their current continuing education hours and courses at TDLR’s Continuing Education Course Look Up page. The Chief Appraiser’s Ethics course may also be used to satisfy the ethics continuing education requirement for other property tax professionals who are not chief appraisers.
