CAD warns of scam


The Hays Central Appraisal District (CAD) is issuing a notice to taxpayers in Hays County to be aware of a letter they could receive from a company offers to file application for homestead exemption with the CAD for a $55.00 processing fee.

“Taxpayers can do it for free,” CAD Chief Appraiser David G. Valle said.

Valle said some taxpayers are confused and think the company is associated with the CAD, which said it has received “quite a number of calls from property owners about this company and if it is legitimate.”

The company mailings in Hays County only contain a Post Office box in Austin. The company does not supply a telephone number.

If Hays County property owners have any questions, Valle asks that the contact the CAD (512) 268-2522.
