If you're thinking about challenging your property taxes this year we wanted to share some resources with you that can help.
First, the deadline to file a protest is May 15th or 30 days after the date you received your Property Value from the County office (whichever one is later). For most of us, the May 15th date will apply since we usually receive the notice before April 15th.
Most counties don't advertise this deadline, since its likely not in their favor for you to file a dispute. A few other important dates to keep in mind related to property taxes are:
January 1: Date of Appraised Value
January 31: Taxes are Due for those who received their bills before January 10.
Secondly, your appraisal notice from the county will tell you exactly how to tile your protest. You can also go in person to the county tax office to have an informal meeting with the appraiser. The meetings are first come first serve, so no appointment is necessary according to the Collin County tax office website.
