Updated Property Tax Information Now Available for McLennan County Taxpayers • Appraisal Notices – Normally, taxpayers receive a notice of appraised value from the appropriate local county appraisal district. The city, county, school districts and other local taxing units will use the appraisal district’s value to set property taxes for the coming year. • Notice of Availability of Electronic Communication – In appraisal districts located in counties with a population of more than 200,000 or that have authorized electronic communications, and that have implemented a system that allows such communications, chief appraisers and ARBs may communicate electronically through email or other media with property owners or their designated representatives. Written agreements are required for notices and other documents to be delivered electronically instead of mailing. • Protesting Property Appraisal Values – Property owners who disagree with the appraisal district’s appraisal of their property for local taxes or for any other action that adversely affects them may protest their property value to the appraisal district’s appraisal review board. The protest deadline is latter of May 17, 2021, or 30 days from date of appraisal notice. ARB Hearings will be conducted remotely to comply with social distancing guidelines, by video and telephone conference, until the ARB deems it safe to hold in person hearings. • Informal Meetings Available – Property owners who disagree with their value may schedule an appointment prior to a formal hearing with the ARB but spaces are limited and will be conducted via teleconference for 2021. • Property Taxpayer Remedies – This Comptroller publication explains in detail how to protest a property appraisal, what issues the county appraisal review board (ARB) can consider and what to expect during a protest hearing. The publication also discusses the options of taking a taxpayer’s case to district court, the State Office of Administrative Hearings or binding arbitration if the taxpayer is dissatisfied with the outcome of the ARB hearing.
