** Texas Property Tax Code charges appraisal districts to appraise property according to market value each year.  Past years' increases in market value of property were allocated mostly to the improvement on the property.  In 2016, Rockwall Appraisal District allocated the value appropriately, which caused an increase in the land value.  Land schedules were updated to more accurately reflect the allocation of the property value between land and improvement.  This did not cause the increase of the overall market value.  Market values would have been the same as the real estate market continues to increase in value.  Real Estate sales indicated a rise in market values, regardless of the allocation.
