Harris County Appraisal District’s property tax protest deadline is May 15 or 30 days after the appraisal district mails the notice of 2020 assessed value.  The protest deadline is the same whether you are protesting or hiring a property tax consultant to protest for you.

Your best option is to protest each year, for each property, prior to May 15th.  If the Harris County Appraisal District does not send a notice of assessed value to you, the deadline is May 15th.  Do not wait to receive a notice of assessed value from Harris County Appraisal District; you lose your rights to protest if you delay and the appraisal district does not send a notice of assessed value.

Harris County Appraisal District Hearing Evidence Package: this valuable package has extensive information on your property and includes any information the appraisal district may use at the property tax protest hearing.  YOU MUST FILE A PROPERTY TAX PROTEST TO OBTAIN THE HEARING EVIDENCE PACKAGE.

The Hearing Evidence Package routinely includes information supporting a reduction in your property taxes, and it is FREE.  That is correct; the invaluable Hearing Evidence Package is FREE upon request, subject to two requirements: 1) you must timely file a protest and 2) you must ask the Harris County Appraisal District to provide it to you.

How to File a Protest

File a protest based on: 1) value over market value (41.41 a1), 2) unequal appraisal (41.41 a2) and 3) any other actions of the appraisal district or appraisal review board that apply to and negatively affect the property owner (41.41 a9).  Also include a copy of your request for the FREE Hearing Evidence Package with your request.

The protest must be mailed by May 15th to be timely or filed on the appraisal district’s website by May 15th.  Harris County Appraisal District’s mailing address is: 13013 Northwest Freeway
Houston, Texas 77040-6305.

Why Protest Annually?

The linked page contains over 20 reasons to protest annually, starting with: It is Your Money.

Appealing property taxes annually is part of the responsibility of property owners.  Like an untended garden, property taxes grow out of control if not reviewed and maintained.  An annual property tax appeal is like lawn care, annual HVAC check, cleaning the gutters or changing the oil in your car.  You can neglect these tasks, but the total cost will be higher if you do.

Harris County Appraisal District generates market values for millions of properties which in turn are the basis for assessing property taxes for the county, city, school districts and other tax entities.
