How will damage from December 26th tornados affect my 2016 property tax appraisals?

Collin CAD appraisers have completed their inspections of properties damaged by the tornados. By law, our annual appraisal is based on the value of property as of January 1st. Any repairs or reconstruction after the January 1, 2016 appraisal date will not be included in our appraisals until 2017.

We will mail every property owner in Collin County a Notice of Appraised Value around May 1st. Please review the 2016 appraisal information in that notice to verify that we properly recognized losses in value caused by storm damages

2016 Certified Values are available

The Chief Appraiser has certified the 2016 appraisal roll. You can now find most properties’ 2016 values using our Property Search. (Click here to search through our 2016 records or find a property in the 2017 records and review its Value History.)

Many of our downloads now contain 2016 value data, including our Database Export and several of our reports: Certified Totals, Certified Value Summaries, and Top Taxpayer Report.

Property Tax Protest Filing Deadline Changes for 2018

Due to passage of HB 2228 during the 2017 Texas Legislature, changes were made to the property tax protest filing deadline; the statutory protest deadline was changed to May 15, or 30 days after the delivery of the Notice of Appraised Value, whichever is later.

Notices of Appraised Value for all Real Property will be mailed on April 13, 2018. The Protest Deadline for all Real Property, based on the April 13th mailing date, will be May 15, 2018. The Protest Deadline will be stated in each Notice of Appraised Value.

Notices of Appraised Value for BPP will be split into two mailings. Mailings are scheduled for May 9, 2018 and June 1, 2018. Since every taxable BPP account will be mailed a Notice of Appraised Value, and the minimum protest period of 30 days is later than the May 15th statutory deadline, the protest deadline for a BPP account will be 30 days after the date we mail (deliver) the Notice of Appraised Value. The Protest deadline will be stated in each Notice of Appraised Value.
