Property tax appeals are an effective option to reduce Texas property taxes. Many large property owners and homeowners consider an annual property tax appeal both necessary and appropriate as part of an effort to reduce property taxes.

Property owners have the right to handle their property tax protest (appeal) in Texas. While filing a protest takes only minutes, preparing for and attending the property tax appeal hearing(s) typically takes two to four hours. Even filing the protest is somewhat complicated since property owners need to “check the box” to appeal both excessive appraised (assessed value exceeds market value) and unequal appraisal.

Many commercial property owners and homeowners hire a property tax consultant due to the time, specialized knowledge and data required to protest property taxes. Some owners find the process frustrating.

Annual appeals are another benefit of engaging a property tax consultant to reduce your Texas property taxes. The pace of life has seemingly increased both at home and work. Many property owners will periodically file a property tax appeal, perhaps every three or four years. In many cases, they will also prepare for and attend the property tax hearings (informal and appraisal review board or ARB hearings). However, about one-third of all individual property owners do not appear for the property tax protest after filing an appeal.

Property tax consultants typically file “blanket appeals.” A blanket appeal is filing a property tax protest for every property every year. Through this persistent process, property tax consultants ensure an all-lawful property tax reduction opportunities are reviewed. Most property tax consulting agreements are based on a contingency fee; there is no cost to the property owner unless property taxes are reduced.
