Did Your Property Appraisal Go Up?

Don’t miss this chance to reduce your tax bill

Did the appraised value of your property go up? Do you think that value is unfair? If you answered yes to those questions, it’s time to file a protest with your central appraisal district. And don’t delay—protests in many Texas counties are due May 31.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts has posted a “Property Taxpayer Remedies” PDF that covers the basics.

The process includes:

  • Filing a protest with your appraisal district within the designated time period
  • Attending an informal hearing to see if your differences can be quickly resolved
  • Appearing before an appraisal review board, if your protest is not resolved at the informal hearing.
  • You’ll need to provide evidence to support your challenge of the appraised value.
