New Appraisals and How to File an Online Protest

May 14, 2024 – Most everyone in Hopkins County has received their 2024 property appraisal from the Hopkins County Appraisal District, and most everyone in Hopkins County has seen the value of their property go up. Higher valuations mean higher tax burdens, and some taxpayers will wish to file a protest to have their appraisal revisited by staff. Making an Online Protest is now available through the Hopkins County Appraisal District (HCAD) website, but doing so can be cumbersome. The deadline to file a protest in any form is May 31, 2024.

Home Page HCAD

To file an Online Protest you must FIRST search for the property by either name, address, or property ID. Enter your information in the search bar at the top of the HCAD home page. Once you find the correct property continue by clicking on “View Property”. Once on the property page, click on the active link “File Notice of Protest for this Property” located on the right side of the property page. This will take you to the form to file an online protest. Answer the questions on that form including checking the appropriate box(es) in the “Reason for Protest” section. Once completed, you will be prompted to “electronically sign” the form to submit.

Although the deadline to file a protest is May 31, 2024. The Hopkins County Appraisal District staff will be working well up into October evaluating each of the protests. Some corrections to appraisals may be resolved by telephone, but in person hearings will be scheduled as well.

The Hopkins County Appraisal District is located at 109 College St. in Sulphur Springs and can be reached at (903) 885-2173.
