Protest Property Tax | Appeal Property Tax Houston – Property Tax Reduction

Overpaying? Find out below:

Is there anything else I can provide to help win my appeal?

Your evidence package will provide strong numerical data to support your case, and is typically more than enough to achieve a reduction.

If there are other specific issues with your home that impact its value (such as water damage, foundation problems, roof damage, ect), we recommend documenting these problems with photos and bids for repair. Additionally, it’s always helpful to familiarize yourself with the protest process so you don’t miss a deadline or opportunity to submit your protest.

  1. Include pictures. Provide even more data by including pictures showing the condition of your home. If you are trying to prove your home is in worse condition than the typical home in your neighborhood, it is always helpful to have photo evidence to support your claims.
  2. Need home repairs? Provide a bid. It’s definitely helpful to describe needed repairs to the appraisal district, but it’s even more powerful if you can provide a bid to show exactly how much it should impact your valuation.
  3. Learn the protest process. Most appeals are settled at the Online, or Informal level. If the appraisal district does not make an offer you agree to accept at the Informal level, your case goes to an Appraisal Review Board (ARB), which consists of 3 impartial citizens.
