2017 Appraisal Notices

 

2017 Appraisal Notices will be mailed May 2, 2017 to property owners whose value increased more than $1,000 in the previous tax year.

City, County, School Districts and other local taxing units rely on the Appraisal District to provide property values in order to set their tax rates and to determine tax to be imposed.

Under Texas law, Appraisal Districts are required to notify property owners about changes in their property’s value.  The notice contains important information about the property’s location, ownership and exemptions along with an estimate of the 2017 taxes by local taxing units using 2016 tax rates.

Chief Appraiser Shelby Presley encourages property owners to contact the Appraisal District to discuss informally any questions they may have concerning their property values or exemptions.

Property owners who disagree with the appraised value, exemptions or any other action by the appraisal district have a right to appeal to the ARB which is an independent panel of citizens responsible for hearing and settling property owner protests.

Included with your appraisal notice are instructions on how and when to file a protest, a protest form and the Comptroller’s Property Taxpayer Remedies.  This publication is also available at Kendall Appraisal District, 118 Market Avenue, Boerne TX 78006, or online at the Comptroller’s Property Tax Assistance website – www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/proptax/ or calling them at 800-252-9121.  Press 2 to access the menu and then press 1 for taxpayer assistance. The deadline for filing a protest is May 31, 2016.

The Comptroller’s Property Taxpayer Remedies also explains in detail how to protest your property appraisal, what issues the Appraisal Review Board (ARB) can consider and what to expect during a protest hearing

Tax statements will be mailed the first week of October.  If you prefer to receive your bill electronically please visit our website – www.kendallad.org – click on the forms tab and the electronic delivery agreement will be the first form on the list.
