Hill CAD’s office is open to the public effective Monday May 11th. Visitors are asked to follow current social distancing guidelines in an effort to promote the safety of everyone. This will require a limited alteration to our normal appeal process. We encourage the public to have informal conferences to discuss your appraised value over the telephone or by email. You can contact an appraiser at 254-582-2508 or a list of appraiser email addresses is located on this website. If you wish to have an in-person informal conference, please call to make an appointment with an appraiser. Our lobby area is small so a limited number of people will safely fit, it is best to come in by yourself.

If you choose to file a protest, you have two options, using the protest form included with the Notice of Appraised Value, or by filing electronically using our E-File system. If you have multiple properties to protest, you must file each property separately.
ARB hearings at this time are expected to be held in the same manner as in the past with a few social distancing safety changes. You may still send in a sworn affidavit to the ARB instead of attending in person. If you request a telephone hearing, please remember that your evidence must be sent to our office prior to the hearing date and submitted by sworn affidavit.
PLEASE NOTE the deadline to file a protest of May 15th has been extended to 30 days from the date of your appraisal notice. Any protest postmarked after that date is untimely and will not be considered.
We feel confident that the precautions that we have put into place will be responsive to the public and also promote safety. If you have an urgent matter and do not feel like we have promptly responded, please call me on my cell phone 254-479-7311.
Thank you for your support, understanding, and cooperation as we continue to work together.
Best Regards,
Mike McKibben
Chief Appraiser
