Property Tax Appeal 

One of your most important rights as a Texas taxpayer is your right to protest your property valuation to the appraisal review board (ARB). 

If you are dissatisfied with your property tax protest results, you have the right to appeal the ARB’s decision. Depending on the facts and type of property, you may be able to appeal to the district court, to an independent arbitrator, or to the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH).
