Protest form

State law sets the protest deadline(s) and the appraisal district does not have the authority to extend them under the law. Protests can be emailed to, placed in the U.S. Mail, or deposited in the drop box located next to the appraisal district’s front door up to the day of the deadline. The deadline is printed on your Notice of Appraised Value.

A property owner who files the notice of protest after the deadline but before the appraisal review board approves the appraisal records is entitled to a hearing and a determination of the protest on a showing of good cause as determined by the ARB for failure to file the notice on time.



Welcome to Hamilton Central Appraisal District

The Texas Constitution requires local taxing units to make taxpayers aware of tax rate proposals and to afford taxpayers the opportunity to roll back or limit tax increases.

Property owners are encouraged to use the website below to find information concerning your estimated taxes, the taxing units to which your taxes are distributed, the dates and locations of any public hearings where your locally elected officials will determine your tax rates, and other important information.  Your property tax burden is determined by your locally elected officials.
