The deadline for filing property tax protests in Montgomery County is closing May 15, meaning all paperwork must be submitted in order to refute the 2023 tax appraisals for homeowners.

The Montgomery County Appraisal District said all residents who wish to protest tax appraisals should submit their intent to do so either online, in mail or in person. If property owners submit an intent to protest through mail, the letter must be postmarked no later than May 15.

Once a request to protest has been submitted, property owners will have an opportunity to go before the Montgomery County Appraisal Review Board at a future scheduled meeting. Property owners can present information either in person, through video conference or in an affidavit submitted to the board.

All required forms to protest property values can be found and submitted on the MCAD website. The process usually takes three to four weeks, according to the board website.
