Helpful Information on How You Can Protest the Property Value Proposed with the Central Appraisal District
One of your most important rights as a taxpayer is your right to protest the property value that is proposed by the Central Appraisal District (CAD). Your protest would be reviewed either formally or informally by the appraisal review board (ARB). Have a question? Reach out to us anytime.
• Verify that the appraisal is for the correct property and make sure that any exemption you are eligible for (i.e. homestead, over 65, etc.) is included
In most cases, you have until May 15 or 30 days from the date the appraisal district notice is delivered – whichever date is later.
After filing your protest, you will receive written notice of the date, time, place and subject matter for a formal hearing with the ARB. You may discuss your objections about your property value, exemptions and special appraisal in a hearing with the ARB. Most appraisal districts however, will informally review your protest with you to try to resolve your concerns prior to a hearing. Contact your local appraisal district for more information or for copies of protest forms.
