The notice of appraised value includes instructions on how and when to file a protest, a protest form and the Texas Comptroller’s publication, Property Taxpayer Remedies. Property owners who disagree with the market value of their property, the exemptions or any other action by the appraisal district, have the right to appeal to the Colorado County Appraisal Review Board.
