Mayor of Forney Files Lawsuit Against Kaufman County Appraisal District


Kaufman County Appraisal District has been making several big mistakes over the years and seems like they are about to pay for it now.

After an application error, made by the appraisal district, many residents are fuming. This error happened to lower the values of several rural properties, one happened be none other than the Mayor of Forney Rick Wilson.

Wilson has since filed a suit again the appraisal district. Dallas Business Journal states “It goes on to say that the district’s chief appraiser is not valuing properties in an equal and uniform manner, and is violating Texas constitutional and statutory mandates. Furthermore, it requests a judge to set aside all of the property valuations done in Kaufman County in 2019 and for the appraisal district to re-do them.”

Although redoing the valuations would help a lot of property owners and hold Kaufman County Appraisal District accountable for their mistakes, it’s not in everyone’s best interest. Budgets for cities, counties, and school districts would be delayed.
