Cherokee County Tax Assessor-Collector attends annual tax association conference in San Marcos
Linda Little attended the 79th annual Tax Assessor-Collector’s Association Conference in San Marcos, June 2 - 6 along with many other Tax Assessor-Collectors and tax office personnel from across the state of Texas.
This annual continuing education conference is held in a different location across the state of Texas each year in hopes of allowing all Tax Assessor-Collectors and their tax office personnel the opportunity to attend.
This year’s program included updates from the Texas State Comptroller, Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and others. Also included in the program were workshops on the following: Property tax and special inventory tax assessment and collections, motor vehicle registration and titling, customer service, voter registration and election issues, ethics and a legislative update.
Tax Assessors who attended all of the sessions during the conference received 13.25 hours of continuing education through the State Comptroller’s Office and the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
“The annual conference is always helpful in improving procedure efficiency. For instance, this year it was discovered that the tax assessor/collector has the authority to limit 30-day permits. This rule will be implemented beginning September,” Little said.
