2019 Property Tax Rates & Values are out. If you haven’t received yours yet, you will soon or you can visit the TCAD website here and look up your address.
****If you bought/moved into your home in 2018, you have until April 30 (not end of May) to file for your homestead exemption, however, according to TCAD, a property owner may file a late application for a homestead exemption after the deadline for filing has passed if it is filed not later than two years after the delinquency date for the taxes on the homestead. The forms can be found here.***
Deadline to protest: In Texas, the deadline to protest property values is May 15, or 30 days after the appraisal district sends notice of the assessed value – whichever is later. The appraisal district is required to send notice if the assessed value is increased by more than $1,000 from the prior year’s value. In most cases, the deadline in Texas is May 15. If the 15th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the deadline is the following business day.
