Appeal Property Taxes in Texas
Texas Property Tax Appraisals Increase in 2014
Property Taxes in Houston increased for about 30% of homeowners last year. We are expecting 2014 to be much different, with about 80% of homeowners receiving a Notice of Appraised Value increase. We predict these increasing values to generate more property tax appeals, since many property owners may disagree with the appraisal district’s increased value.
