Deadline for Filing Protests with the ARB*

Contributed

Usual Deadline
On or before April 30 for residence homesteads and May 31 for all
other property (or within 30 days after a notice of appraised value was
mailed to you, whichever is later).
Late protests are allowed if you miss the usual deadline for good
cause. The ARB decides whether you have good cause.
Late protests are not allowed after the ARB approves the appraisal
records for the year.
Special Deadlines
For change of use (the appraisal district informed you that you are losing
agricultural appraisal because you changed the use of your land),
the deadline is not later than the 30th day after the notice of the determination
was delivered to you.
For ARB changes (the ARB has informed you of a change that increases
your tax liability and the change did not result from a protest you
filed), the deadline is not later than the 30th day after the notice of the
change was delivered to you.
If you believe the appraisal district or ARB should have sent you a
notice and did not, you may file a protest until the day before taxes
become delinquent (usually Feb. 1) or no later than the 125th day after
the date you claim you received a tax bill from one or more of the taxing
units that tax your property. The ARB decides whether it will hear
your case based on evidence about whether a required notice was
mailed to you.


* The deadline is postponed to the next business day if it falls on a weekend or national holiday
