Informal Conference Procedures
Any taxpayer who objects to the assessment placed on his or her property, including the assessment of homestead property at less than just value, shall have the right to request an informal conference with the Property Appraiser.
The Property Appraiser or a member of his or her Staff shall confer with the taxpayer regarding the correctness of the assessment.
At the conference, the taxpayer shall present facts that he or she considers supportive of changing the assessment and the Property Appraiser or his or her representative shall present facts that the Property Appraiser considers to be supportive of the assessment.
The request for an informal conference is not a prerequisite to administrative or judicial review of property assessments. Requesting or participating in an informal conference does not extend the petition filing deadline. A taxpayer may file a petition while seeking an informal conference in order to preserve his or her right to an administrative hearing.
