HOUSTON, TX - Heads-up, if you're a homeowner in Harris County, today, May 15 is your deadline for a property tax protest. The deadline in previous years had been May 31.
More protests are expected this year than in previous years because of Hurricane Harvey damage. Homeowners who were flooded by Hurricane Harvey are being urged to protest their appraisals--to prevent Harris County Appraisal District from overvaluing flooded homes.
Many property tax assessments were done after the storm hit. In Harris County, you can file a protest online at HCAD.org or take it to the appropriate office in your county.
