Tarrant County Appraisal District Notices of Value being Sent Late

Tarrant County Appraisal District Chief Appraiser Jeff Law reports 2020 noticed values for property owners will be delayed. It is not clear when property tax notices will be mailed.

Tarrant County Appraisal District is expected to increase both residential and commercial values, due to the January 1, 2020 effective date. Covid-19 and $20 oil were not an issue on January 1, 2020. The effective date of valuation for Texas is statutory and clear. Appraisal districts and appraisal review boards will generally give no consideration to Covid-19 or low oil prices when negotiating 2020 tax assessed values.

Tarrant County property owners are urged to file a protest by May 15th, the deadline. Protest both market value and unequal appraisal. Also ask for a copy of the Tarrant County Appraisal District Hearing Evidence Package. It is free, but you MUST file a property tax protest by May 15th and request that the appraisal district send the Hearing Evidence Package to you. You can ask that it be sent by mail, at the expense of the appraisal district.

Annual property tax protests are one of the responsibilities of property ownership. Similar to caring for the landscaping and checking the HVAC, property taxes need to be reviewed annually. Left untended, they grow out of control.
