Our office will be closed Wednesday, November 11th in observance of Veteran’s Day.

As of May 22, 2020 a total of 1,636 Notices of Appraised Value have been issued. Real Property 1264, Mobile Home 71, Business Personal Property 301.

If you wish to appeal your proposed value, please either complete the protest form included with your notice and mail it in, drop off in office from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday-Friday, or file a protest on our website at Notices of Appraised Value were mailed out May 22, 2020, to all real properties that increased $1,000 or more in value from the previous year. The deadline to file a protest on properties that received a notice is June 22, 2020, (or 30 days after a notice of appraised value was mailed to you, whichever is later).

Please note your Property ID (account number) on any evidence submitted.

Please be aware that the values are set by law on January 1, 2020. At that time, no one could envision what we are now experiencing. Appraisal districts in the state requested that the governor suspend the laws regarding changes of value and appeals of value, but at this time, he has not done so. We must continue to appraise property according to state law, regardless of the Covid-19, or economic situation.

An appraiser representing the appraisal district will contact you by phone or email, to discuss your protest and any evidence that you have submitted. The appraiser may offer a settlement value and if you accept that value, you will be mailed or emailed a Settlement and Waiver of protest (S&W) that you may sign and return. Upon submission of a signed (S&W) the agreement is considered final and the protest will be closed. If you and the appraiser do not agree on a value, then you will be scheduled for a hearing before the Appraisal Review Board (ARB), a group of local citizens who are selected to hear the appeals.

If you have questions about the appeal procedures, please feel free to call us at (830) 232-6248.

We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are committed to being responsive to the needs of our taxpayers as the situation evolves.
