Property Tax Protest

Protest Your Property Taxes and $ave Money!

As a Homeowner you have an option to protest your property taxes for FREE!!!

To protest your taxes means to challenge what the appraisal district says your property is worth, based on a number of factors. The more the district says your property is worth, the higher your property tax will be at the end of the year.

KEY DATES

Calendar

April 15

This is about the time that you’ll receive your appraisal notice, the valuation that your appraisal district believes your property is worth. This is what they intend to tax you on. The valuation is not set in stone, so it’s possible to protest and get the valuation changed. If you do not protest, this is the value that you’ll be taxed on.

May 15

This is the date by which you need to file your protest with the county – usually. Every county has its own appraisal district, and every appraisal district has its own way of doing things. Texas Tax Code simply states that the protest deadline is no later than May 15th or the 30th day after the date of notice (appraisal notice) to the property owner was delivered (Texas Tax Code 41.44). Though it varies a little bit from county to county, every appraisal district is required to accept protests through May 15.
