Appeals

Arial view of residential neighborhood

There are two opportunities to appeal appraised value at the county level. The first opportunity is in early spring when Notices of Appraised Value are mailed to property owners.  The second time to appeal is by Payment Under Protest in late spring or fall.  Once the appeal process has started, it is best to follow through until satisfied.  If an appeal is filed, no other appeal will be accepted for the same year.

The form to file an Informal appeal is on the back of the early spring Notice of Appraised Value (NOAV). There is also an option to file an informal appeal online using the PIN number provided on the NOAV. If an appeal is filed online versus mailing in the appeal application the appellant receives immediate confirmation the appeal applications, was received by the Appraiser’s office. 

If at the informal level of appeal, the appellant is not satisfied with the results there are two more levels an appellant is able to move onto.  Instructions for filing to the higher two Board of Tax Appeal (BOTA) levels are enclosed with a property owner's appeal result.
