Protesting Taxes

Real estate taxes are based on the valuation of your property. There are two ways you may protest your property valuation which in turn may have an effect on your real estate taxes.
  • When you receive your valuation notice from the Appraiser's Office, you have 30 days to protest the valuation of the property.
  • If you do not protest the valuation at the time you receive your valuation notice, you may complete a Payment Under Protest Form (Appraiser has forms) when you pay your taxes. Only paid taxes are eligible for protest.
You have until December 20 to complete a payment under protest form.
