Why Protest in 2016?
Did you know that your 2016 Proposed Value is based off of a mass appraisal?
To save time and money, the appraisal district uses a mass appraisal system based on “typical” property values to appraise ALL the properties in each property classification.
We know that not every home is the same, and that’s why we provide a personalized, custom analysis of your home. We know what evidence the District generally finds persuasive to lower your value, and we argue those differences that matter. At the end of your protest, the District will individually appraise your home, and you will only pay taxes on what your home is actually worth.
It’s May or Never.

Protesting Today Can Save You Money in 2016 and for Years to Come.
The Appraisal District is only required to reappraise a home every three years. Often when home values are declining, the District chooses not to reappraise every year. After all, why would the District lower their tax revenues when it is not required to do so? If the District does not reappraise your home for 2017 and 2018, protesting this year will benefit you for three years.
If you are in a neighborhood whose value is increasing more than 10% each year, contesting your property taxes each and every year makes sense too. The District is only allowed to increase your taxable value by 10% each year. Any reduction we obtain saves you money in 2016, and it will decrease the taxable base value that will be used for future years as well.
