Protest Process



The right to protest to the Appraisal Review Board (ARB) is one of the most important rights you have as a taxpayer. A protest must be filed by May 15, or no later than 30 days after the Appraisal District delivers a Notice of Appraised Value to you, whichever is later. If the protest deadline falls on a weekend or holiday then the protest deadline is the first business day after that date.

The Parker County Appraisal District (PCAD) would prefer that all property owners file their protest with the Appraisal Review Board (ARB) online using PCAD’s website instead of visiting our office or mailing in a protest.
