Texas Water Code
Sec. § 57.338
Protesting Payment of Claims Approved Before District Was Dissolved


If a person who pays taxes in the district protests the payment of a claim filed under Section 57.337 (Claims That Were Approved Before District Was Dissolved) of this code, the trustees shall refuse to pay the claim.


The protest is sufficient to cause the trustees to disallow the claim if the person making the protest files the protest with the trustees, along with a bond for twice the amount of the claim, signed by sufficient sureties approved by the trustees, payable to the trustees, and conditioned on the protesting taxer’s paying all costs of suit if the claimant establishes his claim in full.


A person whose claim is disallowed under this section may sue the trustees for the amount he claims.
