Methods and Assistance Program (MAP) Reviews
Tax Code Section 5.102 requires the Comptroller of Public Accounts to review county appraisal district (CAD) governance, taxpayer assistance, operating standards and appraisal standards, procedures and methodology at least once every two years.
The Comptroller’s Property Tax Assistance Division (PTAD) has been performing Methods and Assistance Program (MAP) reviews of approximately half of all CADs each year. School districts located in counties that do not receive MAP reviews in a year will be subject to property value studies in that year.
Government Code Section 403.302 (m) creates the Property Value Study Advisory Committee (PVSAC) and prescribes how members of the committee are appointed. The Comptroller adopts rules governing the Property Value Study (PVS) and the Methods and Assistance Program (MAP) after consulting with the PVSAC.
