PROTEST PROCESS

If you think the market value of your property is incorrect, the appraisal district encourages you to file a protest.

There are two programs – iFile and iSettle – that we have in place to help streamline any appeal you choose to make. You can use both of these programs from the comfort of your home or your office.

Using iFile and iSettle can eliminate the need for you to come to the district office at 13013 Northwest Freeway. This will be especially useful this year while construction on 290 has increased traffic congestion on the highway and service roads around HCAD’s building.

Receipt of your protest will be immediately verified by email. Your data, along with other market information, will be reviewed by an appraiser, and you will be notified by email of a decision on your iSettle protest.

As soon as HCAD notifies you of our decision, you will have immediate online access to all of the information, including the comparable sales, used in considering your appeal. You can use that information to decide whether to accept or reject HCAD’s decision. If you are not satisfied, you’ll be scheduled to make your case at a formal Appraisal Review Board hearing.
