When is the deadline to file a protest?admin
Short answer: May 31st.
The deadline to file a protest each year is May 31st or 30 days after you receive your Notice of Appraised Value – whichever is LATER. That means if you received your Notice of Appraised Value in March or April, you have until May 31st to file a protest – even if there is an earlier “deadline” printed on your Notice of Appraised Value.
Some Appraisal Districts print misleading “deadlines” in order to get people to file protests earlier and to discourage people from filing after a certain date. State law requires that those districts accept all protests filed by the actual May 31st deadline.
If you received your Notice of Appraised Value after May 1st, you have 30 days from the date on your Notice to file a protest. The deadline to file a protest for a Notice received on May 15th is June 14th, etc.
