True Automation developed a new browser based application that allows Owners to file a protest over the Internet. The legislative requirements were part of SB873 and HB1030. These two bills set in motion an unprecedented level of interaction over the internet between appraisal districts and taxpayers.
Once you have registered and signed in on the website, you will see a list of your properties that are eligible to file an E-File online appeal or protest. If you have more than one Owner ID, you can simply add the additional Owner IDs to the one registered user. You cannot start an E-File appeal online after the protest deadline has passed, usually May 31. You still have the option to file a late protest on the paper protest form.
There are only two protest reasons allowed as an E-File appeal.
Market Value and Unequal Appraisal.
All other types of protests must use the paper protest form to file their protest.
The property owner and staff appraiser can upload evidence or photos to help in resolving their value dispute. The Taxpayer will receive a settlement offer or will receive a notice that a settlement offer will not be made for the current property protest. The property owner will either electronically accept or reject a settlement offer received.
