In December, the Orange County Appraisal District mailed out a Hurricane Harvey Damage Questionnaire.  That questionnaire asked you to report the depth of water that you received inside your home or business as well as a brief description of the damage remaining as of January 1, 2018.  They have received around 4,000 questionnaires in their office to date.  They are asking that you please respond to the questionnaire whether you flooded or not so that they can update their records and maps.

It’s very important that they get this information in so that if any adjustment is needed due to the remaining damages those adjustments can be made prior to the Notice of Appraised Values being mailed out.  If you have misplaced yours, there are two ways to submit this information, access questionnaire by clicking the link Hurricane Harvey Questionnaire (found on their website homepage:, or go by their office at 9157 Interstate 10 in Orange.

In order to have the adjusted value show up on the 2018 Notice of Appraised Value the questionnaires need to be submitted by March 9, 2018.  They will still accept them after that date but any adjustments will not be reflected on the Notice of Appraised Value.
