The Brazos Central Appraisal District (BCAD) mailed 80,000 valuation notices on Monday.
Chief appraiser Dana Horton says most property valuations in Brazos County rose by 20 percent from the year before.
Horton says that is based on sales activity of comparable properties.
The BCAD office is now taking informal protests. Horton says that can be done by going to the office, calling 979-774-4100, or sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Horton says informal appeals will be considered until formal protests begin on May 16.
