Tax Roll Corrections:

First, You must file a Under Protest and have a Hearing with the Appraisers Office.

All "changes" to Tax Bill are issued by the Crawford County Appraiser.  Treasure Office receives this information and issues corrected tax bill.   Reductions will be reflected on the second half payment if taxes were not paid in full.  Fully paid taxes with a reduction will create an overage resulting in a refund.
