Tax Calendar

The following are important dates in the Tax calendar year:
January 1 Date that determines taxable and homestead exemption status.
April 15 Last day for property owners to file renditions or request an extension.
April 30
  • Deadline to make application for many types of total exemptions. Homestead and disabled veteran exemptions may be applied for up to one year after the taxes for the year of application become delinquent (usually February 1). Over-65 or disability homestead applications may be filed as soon as the applicant becomes 65 or meets the Social Security requirements for total disability, whichever is applicable.
  • Deadline for filing written protests to the Appraisal Review Board for residence homesteads; however, protests may be filed without penalty within 30 days of the date a notice of appraised value is mailed to the property owner or until the earlier of May 31 or the date the appraisal review board approves appraisal records.
May 31
  • Last day to apply for agricultural, timber, or wildlife productivity appraisal without penalty.
  • Deadline for filing written protests to the Appraisal Review Board (or by the 30th day after a notice of appraised value is mailed to the property owner, whichever is later). Late protests filed after the deadline require a determination by the review board that good cause, such as serious illness, exists for the late filing.
October 1-31 Tax bills are usually mailed during this month.
January 31 of following year Last day to pay property taxes without penalty and interest.

If a deadline falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the last day to file is automatically extended to the next business day.
