Online Protest

Please be aware that the online protest is considered to be an informal meeting. Filing an online protest forfeits your opportunity to have an informal meeting with an appraiser at the appraisal district. If you choose to come in to the CAD and/or send in your protest by mail, you forfeit your right to protest online.
