Procedures for 2021 Protests

INFORMALS, PROPERTY TAX PROTEST AND APPEAL PROCEDURES

 

Rains County Appraisal District has prepared 2021 Notices of Appraised Value for all non-commercial properties.  These notices should be mailed on or around April 19, 2021.  That will open the window for property owners to conduct informal meetings with their appraiser before formal protest.  At this time informal protest meetings with appraisal staff will be scheduled after Protest has been filed and received in our offices.  To better serve the public, appointments will be set up in order of received protest.  Appraisal Review Board hearings will be scheduled after protest is filed and an appraiser will contact you prior to your scheduled hearing date.

Protest can be filed on-line at our website Rainscad.org, by mail and there is a mail slot on our front door available. Please include your phone number and/or email address to enable the appraiser to contact you.    Any supporting documentation can be emailed to your appraiser once they have contacted you.

If for any reason you are unable to contact us by phone, please send us an email to rcadmail@rainscad.org so that we will have a record of your inquiry.  We will work hard to provide a prompt response.  We apologize for any inconvenience and would like to thank you for your understanding.
