E-File Your Protest2022-07-05T09:58:53-05:00


E-File makes it easy to file and settle your protest online.

To e-file, you will need to setup an online account. If you need assistance with setting up an account or logging in, please contact our customer service department for assistance.

In the e-File 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 evidence.   If this analysis indicates a reduction is warranted, we’ll email you notice that you have a settlement offer available. You’ll need to log on to the district’s e-File website to indicate your acceptance. You’ll get immediate confirmation, and that is all there is to it!

If we can’t make you an offer or you don’t agree with our offer, you may schedule an informal meeting with a TCAD appraiser or have a hearing before the Travis Appraisal Review Board.


What happens if I do not appear for my formal hearing?2023-10-05T08:45:52-05:00

Your protest will be dismissed if you do not appear in person, through a valid affidavit, by agent, or by pre-scheduled telephone hearing. You may request that the ARB Chairperson reopen the hearing by sending a letter within 4 days of your scheduled hearing citing the good cause reason for failure to appear.

Where are ARB hearings conducted?2020-11-30T19:01:42-06:00

In-person hearings are conducted at the Travis Central Appraisal District office located at 850 E Anderson Lane. The hearing letter you receive will have specific instructions regarding the location of your hearing.

When will I get my notice about a formal hearing?2020-11-30T19:04:52-06:00

The Appraisal Review Board (ARB) sets protest hearing schedules. You will receive a notice of protest hearing letter by general mail at least 15 days before the scheduled formal hearing date. Included with that letter will be a copy of Property Taxpayer’s Remedies (a publication of the State Comptroller’s Office), a copy of the ARB hearing procedures, and a statement that you have the right to inspect the information that the Appraisal District plans to introduce at your hearing.

What should I bring to my formal hearing?2020-11-30T19:06:55-06:00

Please bring your hearing letter to expedite the check in process. You should also bring any information that you want to present to support the value you think is correct. Bring 5 sets of the evidence to the formal hearing.
