Change in Protest Filing Deadline for the 2018 Tax Year

The 2017 Texas Legislature, with the passage of HB 2228, changed the property tax protest filing deadline. The protest deadline was changed to May 15 or 30 days after the delivery of the Notice of Appraised Value, whichever is later. This legislation moved the statutory protest deadline up two weeks but the minimum protest period of 30 days is the same as the prior law. In Collin County appraisal notices to homeowners and all other categories of real property has been moved up two weeks.

Real Property:

In Collin County every taxable real property account will be mailed a Notice of Appraised Value. Real property notices are being mailed (delivered) on April 13, 2018. Therefore, the protest deadline for all real property, based on an April 13th mailing date, will be the May 15, 2018 statutory deadline. The deadline will be stated in each Notice of Appraised Value.

Business Personal Property (BPP):

In Collin County the 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 deadline will be stated in each Notice of Appraised Value.
