eFile makes it easy to settle your protest online.


NOTE: An E-File protest serves as an informal protest hearing.


We continue to push the boundaries of computer and other technologies to ensure better service and offer fair and equal market valuations of property in our county. In the traditional system, you file your protest by mail, wait weeks to have your protest scheduled, and then have to come to the district’s office for two appointments. The first appointment is for an informal settlement conference with an appraiser. Most protests are settled at this conference. If the protest isn’t settled, you can go on to a second appointment to appear before the appraisal review board.

In the eFile system, you file your protest online. You get an immediate confirmation that your protest has been filed. We will review your opinion of value and your property’s characteristics and those of the neighborhood, and compare your property’s value to recent selling prices and to the values placed on other comparable properties. If this analysis indicates a reduction is warranted, we’ll email you a notice that you have a settlement offer. You’ll need to log on to the district’s eFile website to indicate your acceptance. You’ll get immediate confirmation, and that is all there is to it. What if we can’t make an offer or you don’t agree? You’ll be scheduled to go straight to a hearing with the appraisal review board, which will independently review the evidence. Most people still make a trip for that, but you can, if you choose, file your evidence by affidavit.


To E-File, you will need the Owner ID and PIN number on your Notice of Appraised Value.
