Here are some steps you can take to protest your property tax assessment:
Check your property tax assessment to make sure it is accurate. Make sure that your property's value is not overestimated, and that any exemptions you are entitled to are applied.
- Gather evidence: Collect evidence that supports your claim that your property's assessed value is too high. This could include recent appraisals, photos of the property, and information about comparable properties in your area.
- File a protest: File a protest with the Dallas Central Appraisal District (DCAD) by the May 15th deadline. You can do this online or by mail. In your protest, explain why you believe your property's value is incorrect and provide any evidence you have.
- Attend a hearing: After you file your protest, the DCAD will schedule a hearing to review your case. Attend the hearing and present your evidence to the review board.
- Receive a decision: The review board will make a decision about your case and will send you a notice of their decision. If they decide to lower your property's assessed value, your property taxes will be adjusted accordingly.
