Tax Protest Time Coming To An End…

Don’t miss this chance to reduce your tax bill. Many local counties are offering on-line protests which will save you so much time. Make sure you take a moment to look into this before heading down to your local tax office.

Did the appraised value of your property go up? Do you think that value is unfair? If you answered yes to those questions, it’s time to file a protest with your central appraisal district. And don’t delay—protests in many Texas counties are due May 31.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please shoot us a message here and we will be glad to assist you.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts has posted a “Property Taxpayer Remedies” PDF that covers the basics.

The process includes:

Filing a protest with your appraisal district within the designated time period.

Attending an informal hearing to see if your differences can be quickly resolved.

Appearing before an appraisal review board, if your protest is not resolved at the informal hearing.

You’ll need to provide evidence to support your challenge of the appraised value, so give us a call if we can help you out.

For more information about protesting your appraised value, visit the website of the Texas Comptroller of Public Acccounts.
