Property Tax Law Deadlines

This calendar shows important property tax deadlines for appraisal districts, taxing units and property owners. Tax Code Section 1.06 provides that "[i]f the last day for the performance of an act is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal state or national holiday, the act is timely if performed on the next regular business day." The deadlines shown in this calendar reflect dates as they are provided in the law without any adjustment for an extension that might be applicable. Contact your local appraisal district or tax office if a due date falls on a weekend or holiday. To the extent that you need or want legal advice or seek an interpretation of statutory provisions, you should contact an attorney.
