There are a number of reasons you may wish to protest your appraisal. The most common reason is if you feel the value assigned to your home by the county is incorrect. You may also wish to protest if your home has been appraised at a higher portion of its value than most properties, if you have been denied an exemption, or if the Central Appraisal District failed to provide notice that the value of your home changed. Whatever the reason, you must file your protest by May 31 or thirty days from whenever you received notice, whichever is later.
