Houston Property Tax Rate may be changing:

HISD is considering increasing the property tax rate by 6 cents to close budget gaps for the next school year. The property tax increase would come on top of the already planned 1-cent tax hike for 2014.

So, What does this mean for you?  The average home worth $200,000 will pay an extra $100 in property taxes, assuming the value does not change.

However, most experts are forecasting values to increase in 2013, so it’s important to keep an eye on your property tax assessment. PropertyTaxReduction.com offers a free property tax assessment check, so homeowners can find out if they should file a property tax appeal.
