In 2017, the Texas Legislature made changes to the Texas Property Tax Code, most of which became effective on January 1, 2018. Among the changes are new, earlier deadlines for filing Notices of Protest and Personal Property Renditions.
Three important property tax deadline changes are:
- May 15: The new deadline for filing a Notice of Protest. The previous deadline was May 31. If a Notice of Appraised Value is sent under Code Section 25.19 the deadline is extended until the 30th day after the notice is delivered.
- April 1: The new deadline for filing a personal property rendition "for property located in an appraisal district in which one or more taxing units exempt property under Section 11.251 (Freeport Exemption)." The previous deadline was April 15.
- March 31: The new deadline for an application for Interstate Allocation for moveable personal property, including vehicles, vessels and watercraft, commercial aircraft and business aircraft. The previous deadline was April 30.
A summary of the remaining deadline changes are as follows:
