Usual Deadline to File Protest(s)
On or before May 31 (or 30 days after a notice of appraised value was mailed to you, whichever is later).
Late protests are allowed if you miss the usual deadline for good cause. Good cause is some reason beyond your control, like a medical emergency. The ARB decides whether you have good cause.
