What to Know About Property Tax Protest

The deadline to protest property taxes is rapidly approaching. May 15th marks the date by which homeowners must file a Notice of Protest of their annual appraisals. Even if your property value did not increase this year, there are still options for reductions. Whether you file yourself online or by mail, or use an independent company, there are a few things you should know about the process before diving in.
May 15th - or the 30th day after the notice of value was delivered to the property owner (whichever is later) - is the deadline to file a Notice of Protest of your appraisal. When it comes to filing, you can either use the form mailed to you by the Appraisal District or file your protest online.
