Denton County Appraisal District Chief Appraiser Hope McLure announces:

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly altered the economy, our interaction with each other, and the ability to conduct business as usual. In response to this, Denton CAD’s offices will remain closed until further notice, because the health and safety of our employees and the people we serve are our top priority. Listed below are the actions we will be taking to provide a safe 2020 Protest Season for all.

Personal Property Rendition Deadline extended until May 15.
[End of chief appraiser’s message.]

  • Most value notices will be mailed Wednesday April 29th.
  • Property owners are encouraged to protest by the statutory deadline of May 15.
  • When protesting, property owners should request a copy of the Denton County Appraisal District Hearing Evidence Package! It is FREE. But YOU MUST file a protest to get a copy of the Denton County Appraisal District Hearing Evidence Package.

Property owners are URGED to file a property tax protest by May 15 to guarantee their right to the Denton County Appraisal District Hearing Evidence Package.

Frequently Ask Question: Will Covid-19 or $20 Oil Impact Denton County Property Taxes?

Short answer is NO. Denton County Appraisal District (TAD), for purposes of property taxes, will not consider Covid-19 or $20 oil prices, due to the January 1, 2020 valuation date. Denton Central Appraisal District will give no relief in 2020 for either Covid-19 or $20 oil. To be fair to Denton Central Appraisal District, they do not have discretion in reducing values for hardship.

Owners of business personal property in Denton County, Texas are warned that completing the Denton County Appraisal District form as requested is not a good idea. It will likely cause you to pay double the correct level of property taxes. I feel so strongly about this I wrote the book (What You Need To Know About Personal Property Valuation) listed below and available on Amazon.
