Here at The Williamson Central Appraisal District, we strive to provide you with knowledgeable service. Our office will be closed for the Independence Day holiday Monday, July 4th. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you, but we will be back open and ready to assist you at 8 AM on Tuesday, July 5th.
The Protest Deadline for most property owners in Williamson County was May 16th, 2022. Per Texas Property Tax Code 41.44(a)(1), WCAD cannot accept a late protest. You may petition the ARB, with good cause, to accept a late protest by using the late protest form at https://www.wcad.org/hearing-reschedule-request-late/.
If your Notice of Appraised Value was dated after April 17th, 2022, refer to the Notice for your protest deadline.
About the Appraisal Review Board
In counties with a population of 120,000 or more the Appraisal Review Board (ARB) is appointed by the local administrative District Judge. There is an application process prior to the appointment. The board members must be residents of the district and must have resided in the district for at least two years. The members of the board hold office for terms of two years beginning January 1st.
The ARB presides over the formal hearings during the appeals process, determining the market value of the property in question based on information presented to them by the property owner (or the owner’s agent) and the Appraisal District representative.
“The Appraisal Review Board (ARB) is a group of impartial citizens that serve as the judicial part of the protest system. The ARB is a separate and independent body from the Williamson Central Appraisal District and serves a different function. The ARB hears and resolves disputes over appraisal matters based on evidence provided by both the taxpayer and the Appraisal District. While this is a broad and important responsibility, the ARB must be sensitive to its legal and practical limits while adhering to Texas Property Tax Codes. The ARB has authority over matters submitted to it and has no role in the day to day operations of the appraisal office or in appraising property. Except where it is deciding a taxpayer protest, the ARB has no authority to change a value or change the appraisal records directly.”
