The Williamson County and Travis County Appraisal Districts have sent out their notices of appraised value. If you feel like your appraisal is too high you may want to protest the value this year.

For those of us who have been given the option to protest online that is the best place to start. In this short video I recorded a screencast showing myself completing an online protest. If you have any questions please let me know.

What are the steps to complete an online protest in Williamson County and Travis County?

  1. Make sure your “Notice Of Appraised Value” form has a watermark that says “Online Protest Available.”
  2. Type in your Quick Ref ID and Online Protest ID.
  3. Be sure to check the value is over market value AND unequal.
  4. Type in a value that you feel is appropriate. You do not need to provide comps to defend your value at this time.
  5. Click Submit.

Some may receive an instant message and others will receive an email within 5 days from the appraisal district that containing a new value or rejecting your protest. You will have a choice to accept that value or make an appointment to protest your taxes in person at an informal hearing.

When you receive the email you should also receive the list of properties the appraisal district used to determine your value. It is helpful to look at this information before your informal hearing to see if they are comparing your home to a home that is substantially bigger, has more upgrades or a pool.
