Contest Your Property Taxes

The deadline to contest your property taxes online is fast approaching!

In addition to threatening our health and economy, COVID-19 has caused many property values to fall. This means that your 2020 appraised property valuation may no longer be accurate. Now more than ever our families need tax relief – not tax increases!

This is your opportunity to contest your property tax valuation. We have provided some easy steps to guide you through the process. We are here to service you and help lower the burden on your family during this difficult time.

Remember the protest deadline is May 15 OR 30 days after the notice is mailed, whichever is later. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, most will have deadlines after May 15 this year – but it is safest to act right away!

Step 1

Go to the Bexar County Appraisal District E-Services Portal and login or create your account.

Step 2

Click on the “Online Appeals” lightning bolt icon

Step 3

  • Follow the prompt on the Protest Summary page and click the “E-file” button to be taken to the protest page:
  • Once there, provide the information you would like the Appraisal Review Board to consider for your protest in the comment section.
  • Then enter your opinion of value.
  • Select your protest reasons (either VOM (incorrect appraised market value) or VUE (value is unequal compared with other properties)).
  • Finally, click “submit.”
