Property Tax Hearing Weekend Evening 41.71

Property Tax Protest Hearings Shall Be Available on Weekends on Evenings

Section 41.71 – Property Tax Protest Hearings on a Weekend or Evening

Property owners sometimes decide not to appeal their property taxes due to the inconvenience of attending a property tax hearing during a workday. Property tax reductions can be significant, both for owners of home and business property. Property owners now have the opportunity to attend either an evening or weekend property tax appeal hearing. The ARB can decide whether to offer hearings during the weekend or evening.

All large appraisal districts, including Harris County Appraisal District, Dallas County Appraisal District, Bexar County Appraisal District, Tarrant County Appraisal District, Travis County Appraisal District, Fort Bend County Appraisal District, Galveston County Appraisal District, Montgomery County Appraisal District, Waller County Appraisal District and Brazoria County Appraisal District offer either evening or weekend property tax protest hearings.

Sec. 41.71. Evening and Weekend Hearings.

(a) An appraisal review board by rule shall provide for hearings on protests on a Saturday or after 5 p.m. on a weekday.

(b) The board may not schedule:

(1) the first hearing on a protest held on a weekday evening to begin after 7 p.m.; or

(2) a hearing on a protest on a Sunday.
