Should I Protest My Property Tax Value?
In Texas the tax values come out in mid-April.
If an owner feels the value is too high they must protest by May 15th.
Texcen Realty agents can tell an owner if they should protest by pulling sales data.
I once saved a property owner over $36,000 on his property taxes!
If you reside in the house you should also file a "Homestead Exemption."
This instantly saves you money & puts a 10% yearly cap on the amount your value can go up.
If protesting the tax value sounds daunting, you can hire a company to do it for you.
They will normally charge you 30% to 50% of the money they save you. They may have other fees as well.
I personally like to use a company that only charges 25%, no other fees, and you pay only if they save you money.
