Appraised Property Value Post Abatement

The chief appraiser in compliance with Section 312.005(a-1), Tax Code, should complete and submit the first annual report on form 50-278 to the Comptroller on or after September 1, 2020. The second and third reports are due by September 1st in the next two subsequent years.

When and whether to file an Appraised Property Value Post Abatement Report (Form #50-278)

  • The earliest date that the first of the three annual reports may be submitted to the Comptroller's office is Sept. 1, 2020, since the new legislation took effect Sept. 1, 2019.
  • Hence, if an abatement expired on Sept. 1, 2019, then the first report can be submitted on Sept. 1, 2020.
  • If a local abatement expired on Jan. 1, 2020, the first report is to be submitted on Jan. 1, 2021.
  • If your abatement expired BEFORE Sept. 1, 2019, then you DO NOT need to fill out Form 50-278.
  • If you have NO abatements, then you DO NOT need to file a report.
