You may now submit documents via our secure drop box located at our office at 105 S. Pine St. in Kountze. Please include your name and phone number with all submissions. Our staff will contact you if we have any questions.
We appreciate your cooperation during this challenging time as we strive to keep our employees and community safe.
In an effort to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, appraisers will not be meeting with taxpayers in person to discuss value for the 2021 protest season. Informal meetings will be handled strictly via phone, email, or fax. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please also take advantage of our new drop box located outside our office to submit protest forms, evidence packets, etc. We will be checking the drop box daily.
You can submit an online protest here using our online protest portal. It is now easier than ever to submit evidence, communicate directly with appraisers, be updated on hearing information, and more. With this tool, there is no more waiting for mail or sitting by the phone waiting for a call. The online portal keeps everything in one place to help simplify the protest process. We encourage all taxpayers who plan to protest to utilize this easy to use, convenient tool.
