The Gregg Appraisal District has begun the process of mailing the 2020 Notices of Appraised Value. As the notices for approximately 300,000 properties are delivered to Gregg County property owners it is important to know that, concerning the Covid-19 Pandemic, the State has made no changes to requirements related to the appraisal process.
To assist our property owners, the chief appraiser has put in place a 30-day automatic extension to the deadline date for filing Business Personal Property Renditions. The extension moves the deadline from April 15 to May 15, allowing business owners additional time to complete the State required filing without penalty.
The chief appraiser has also extended the deadline date related to Agricultural, Timber and Wildlife use applications. The completed forms, along with required supporting documentation, can be submitted without penalty if received before June 30, 2020.
Texas appraisal districts are mandated to appraise properties as of January 1 of each year. The recent real estate market in Gregg County has experienced a stable trend of growth, with 2019 sales and construction gains giving positive indications for the 2020 market.
After review of your 2020 Notice of Appraised Value, if you feel that the estimated value does not reflect the January 1, 2020 market value of your property, please contact our office. We will set up a phone appointment with one of our appraisal staff to review your property value with you. We would encourage you to use our e-file option if, after speaking with an appraiser, you feel a protest is warranted. Our website can serve as a resource for information related to the property tax process, available exemptions, online exemption applications, online Business Personal Property Rendition submission, maps and imagery, or to check comparable properties.
Please do not hesitate to call us with any questions you may have.
