Valuation Notices for 2020 will be mailed Feb. 28. When a notice is received, please take time to review the values and classification to determine if you agree or disagree. If there is a disagreement or you have questions or concerns, contact the County Appraiser’s Office to schedule an appeal within 30 days of the mailing date on the notice. 

Dee Carter, county appraiser, noted the spring informal appeal is the best time to discuss value and/or classification with the county, not payment under protest when you pay your taxes.  

Appeal hearings are held in the County Appraiser’s Office unless specified as a phone or locational hearing. Documentation is helpful such as pictures, recent appraisals, income and expense statements, sales comparisons and/or general information on individual properties. Onsite visits are offered to review issues brought forth in the appeal. 

To contact the County Appraiser's office, call 620-330-1050, email: or visit the office located at 217 E. Myrtle, 2nd floor, Independence.
