Harris County Appraisal District has new app

Date: September 7, 2017

Harris County homeowners who have any type of property damage from Hurricane Harvey can now report that damage to the Harris County Appraisal District through the district’s upgraded app.

The appraisal district already had an existing app for iPhones and Androids that provided information to property owners and allowed them to submit exemption applications and request their iFile number, which is needed to file a protest. Searching for the address or phone numbers automatical...ly triggers elements on the phone, which would then load maps for directions or prompt the phone to dial a number.

The new HCAD app is available to download for free through the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, but it requires an iPhone 4 or an iPad 3 or beyond. If you already have the app, you can update it to reveal the new damage report feature.

The appraisal district also has set up a special phone line for property owners to report Hurricane Harvey damage at 713.812.5805, or they can email that information to help@hcad.org . Please provide your name, address, phone number and account number, if you have it, along with the number of inches or feet of water you received.
