**INITIAL REVIEWS OF ONLINE APPEALS COMPLETED**
Please be advised, staff appraisers have completed their review of the 2,218 appeals submitted through our online portal. There are currently 249 accounts with a pending settlement offer to be reviewed by the property owner. If you submitted an appeal through our online portal and have yet to ACCEPT or REJECT a settlement offer, please sign in to your account and do so at this time. If no settlement offer is viewable, please contact our office so we may address the issue from our end. All appeals without an accepted or rejected status will be scheduled for a formal hearing with the Appraisal Review Board to finalize this stage of the appeals process. Our admin staff members will begin scheduling these accounts in August for formal hearings beginning in September.
Our office extends our appreciation to all the property owners who submitted their 2021 protest through our online portal. The 2,218 appeals submitted reflects an increase of 14% from 2020. The time and fiscal resources saved through the use of this method is significant. Typically, 16 telephone conference informal hearings can be scheduled per appraiser each day. The use of the online portal freed up approximately 1100 hours or 138 full days of hearings. As of this posting, on average, property owners accepted settlement offers amounting to a reduction of 8.7% or $25,000.

CHANGE TO FACE COVERING POLICY
Please be advise, following the issuance of Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-36, the Guadalupe Appraisal District we will no longer require individuals entering our facilities to wear a face covering. We respectfully request those entering our lobbies, who have yet to receive a vaccination, to consider wearing a face covering.
However, we will still be limiting the traffic within our lobby to allow for social distancing. Our lobbies are relatively small and can accommodate approximately six (6) members of the public, while still maintaining recommended social distancing guidelines. Please keep this in mind when visiting either of our locations.
We appreciate the cooperation and understanding extended to our office, throughout these past 12-15 months, from members of the public. We welcome the receding of restrictions and ability to assist those we serve.
