Protest Your Value
The Galveston CAD will be mailing 2020 appraisal notices April 20th and this year will be very different from other years. According to its website, GCAD is closed and will be unable to provide informal appraisal meetings in person due to the coronavirus. It is encouraging property owners to contact them via phone, mail or email.
Current CDC guidance requests gatherings of 10 or more persons to cease. Although updates are expected, all Effectively Protest Your Property Value classes are suspended until further notice. Please watch this website, newspapers and Facebook (Cheryl Johnson/Galveston County Tax Office) for updates.
In an attempt to provide assistance, the class booklet has been expanded and is included below along with the Protest Worksheets. There have been many additions to the booklet and spreadsheets this year due to changes in the law as well as special sections on the coronavirus and economic impact of the pandemic for the future.
