EL PASO, Texas -- Home valuations are expected to increase this year and the more your house is valued, the more property taxes you have to pay.
El Pasoans do have an opportunity to protest the valuation. The Central Appraisal District said you can protest if the market value is incorrect, property is not appraised equally to similar properties, or anything else incorrect about your property. The deadline is May 17.

El Paso's Chief Appraiser Dinah Kilgore told ABC-7 last month that due to the lack of new homes being built during the pandemic and the increased price of building materials, housing prices have gone up exponentially.
The CAD wanted to make it clear, they are only responsible for home valuations and not the percentage of property taxes.
