El Paso deadline approaches to appeal property tax appraisal

EL PASO, Texas -- The deadline to appeal your home's property value is three days away. Many El Pasoans who saw their property values rise showed up at the Central Appraisal District ahead of the deadline.

You can appeal at the El Paso Central Appraisal District in person, but a protest can also be filed online.

You can click the link here to epcad.org to go directly to the application.

Through open records request, ABC-7 learned nearly 75% of residents who appealed their appraisal value last year were granted a reduction.

Assistant Chief Appraiser for the Central Appraisal District tells us why an appraisal value may be incorrect on the notice.

“We use mass appraisal to appraise property so most of the time an appraiser doesn’t physically go out and look at your house. So, if you have some kind of issue then we might not necessarily know about so if you think there's an issue affecting your property value that we may not know it's a good idea to protest," said David Stone.

Stone says if you noticed something that would change your home's value bring it to the appeal.

"Anything that's wrong with your property, if you need a new roof, the house needs painting, whatever, get an estimate, take a picture, make sure you bring in a picture that's very important and you could get your value lowered," said Stone.

        1. No doubt your neighbors will be thankful. They’re pretty sick of your hillbilly white trash azz dragging down their home values.

          1. Speak for yourself you racist. You live on a dirt lot. I have the nicest house on my cul de sac. Complete with over 4000 Sq ft of perfectly manicured lawn. Just finished mowing in fact.

          2. You wouldn’t like my neighborhood, too much law enforcement here. You wouldn’t last long here with your mouth, chicken man!

        2. Us too. As soon as I retire, I’m heading to Montana! The land has alreasy been purchased. Just waiting for my arrival to place a home on it.

          1. We like Texas but we’re tired of the heat here and the crowds and the traffic. We’re going where there’s snow on the ground for months and more animals than people.

  1. I have to agree with MAGA, but I can’t leave due to business concerns. Texas is getting way too crowded. Montana or Wyoming would be nice. I’d love to be able to look out my window and see nothing for miles but buffalo peacefully grazing.
