Property Tax Town Hall

On May 28th, 2016, State Senator José Menéndez, State Representative Diego Bernal, and City Councilman Roberto Treviño hosted a Property Tax Town Hall to inform San Antonio taxpayers of their rights and responsibilities. Each year the Bexar Appraisal District appraises the estimate value of every property in the county. Property owners have the right to dispute and appeal an appraisal if they believe it is excessive. At this event, taxpayers learned the importance of paying their property taxes, where that money goes, and how to appeal appraisals. The Honorable Mike Villarreal, former State Representative for District 123, facilitated the town hall.

Taxpayers wishing to protest their appraisals in person have until 5pm on May 31st, 2016. To file a protest in person please visit the Bexar Appraisal District office located at 411 North Frio San Antonio, TX 78207.

Taxpayers wishing to protest their appraisals online have until 11:59pm on May 31st, 2016. Please visit  http://www.bcad.org/ for more information.
