Texas Association of Assessing Officers

TAAO is a nonprofit organization whose goal for more than 70 years has been the promotion of the mutual interests of property tax professionals throughout the state. Members include tax administrators, appraisers, tax collectors, attorneys and private companies engaged in the property tax field. We welcome professionals from tax entities and businesses that are large and small, urban, suburban and rural, with varying amounts of experience.

TAAO provides a full range of state-mandated courses plus additional workshops and seminars designed to elevate the profession. Members receive a daily feed of property tax related news articles, notice of actions by state agencies and during the legislative session, updates of proposed legislation. This website also provides employment opportunities across the state and is designed to provide a window into all that TAAO offers. We hope that TAAO proves to be a beneficial resource in your journey for a successful career.
