Did you received an Appraisal Notice and want to file a protest online?

In order to file an Online Protest you will need to have received an Appraisal Notice. Here are a few things you will need to have if this is your FIRST time to protest online:

  • Appraisal Notice
  • Valid Email address
  • E file PIN (located in the top portion of the appraisal notice)
  • Owner ID (This will also be considered as "Account Identification Number" on step 1 of registration)

* On step 4 it will show your registration as complete but you will NEED to check the email you registered with to confirm before you are able to log in to your account *

There will be a link within the email for you to click for confirmation.


Returning Users with an Appraisal Notice

If you have already created an account and are a returning user to file a protest online using our online portal here are items that you need:

  • User Name

If you are unsure what your username /password is you will need to click the appropriate tabs in the portal to recover your information. *Please note for your security purposes, the Polk Central Appraisal District will not have your Username or Password. You will need to go through the proper steps to recover the information. 

I did NOT receive an Appraisal Notice but want to file a formal protest.

If you did not receive an Appraisal Notice you will not be able to file a protest online using our Online Portal. You still can file a protest by downloading the Protest form using the link provided and return the form to us via in person, email or fax.
