Cooke County Appraisal District will be closed Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day!


WHEN FILING YOUR PROTEST USING THE ONLINE PORTAL USE YOUR OWNER ID WITH THE PIN.  DO NOT USE THE ACCOUNT NUMBER.  After you complete the registration process you will receive an email to confirm your registration.  It may take anywhere from 30 minutes or more before you get the email. Once you have received your email you can come back to our website, click on the Online Portal and login using your login name and password.  If you have multiple properties check to see if you have more than one Owner ID.  If you do you will need to register using that Owner ID also.  You can not use the same user name and password as the first registration with the second owner ID.

Public Notice:  

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation progresses, we are committed to serving the public.

We have made the decision to keep our doors open but public access beyond the lobby is closed.

If you are unable to complete your protest using the Online Portal and your deadline is near it is suggested that you complete your protest using the protest form on the back of your appraisal notice.  If you do not have the notice available you can find a Notice of Protest form under the "Forms" tabs, scroll down until you see Appraisal Review Board, you will find a protest form there.  You can email it to, or mail your protest. However, the postmark cannot be later than the deadline date. You can also use our drive through and drop box.

Due to the Coronavirus, currently all hearings before the Appraisal Review Board will be conducted by conference call or affidavit until further notice. Since your hearing is by conference call it is requested that your evidence be submitted five (5) days or as soon as possible prior to your hearing. All evidence submitted must be in a form that can be filed with your protest record. If you have requested that you receive a hearing in person your hearing will be held at a later date to be determined by the Appraisal Review Board.

If you submit your evidence by affidavit, there is a form under the "Forms" tab. The affidavit must be notarized and be submitted prior to your board hearing. 

If you need to pay your taxes or make a quarterly payment, you can within our website under “Pay Taxes Online”, CCAD’s drive thru window or use the drop box on the south side of our building.  If you use the drop box please DO NOT leave cash.

Please monitor our website at for any changes to our day to day operations.  We appreciate your patience regarding the current situation.
