Appraisal Notices for Tax Year 2020 have been mailed out!

For health and safety concerns, the Henderson County Appraisal District has suspended ALL in-person appeals for 2020.  All property owners wishing to appeal their 2020 appraisal MUST file a formal protest by utilizing one of the options below:

  • Henderson CAD Online Protest Portal

** Please DO NOT drop off your protest in person  **

Please be sure to include the following with your protest:

  • Phone # and email address so CAD staff can contact you
  • Your opinion of the value of your property
  • Any evidence you feel supports your protest

Henderson County Appraisal District recognizes the negative effect of the Coronavirus pandemic on the national and state economy.  We understand and sympathize with the struggles this pandemic has created for the citizens of Henderson County; however, this Appraisal Notice represents your property value as of January 1, 2020, per the Texas Property Tax Code.  Any impact on values from the current health crisis should be reflected in the 2021 property valuations.  Unfortunately, there are currently NO provisions in the tax code to allow for reduced values for 2020 based on an event such as the current health crisis.

* All Appraisal Review Board hearings will be conducted telephonically for 2020*
