Don’t Just Take Our Word for It

Here’s what some of our clients have to say.

Their service is indispensable. Given the current home market, I did not expect them to be able to win the Tax Protest. Needless to say, they outdid themselves and minimized my tax increase. All I did was send them pictures of my home and they did the rest, very effortless. I highly recommend their service.

Awesome easy process. I had been doing this process my self for years with some limited success, but many hours of work. Texas tax Protest was well worth the time I saved vs the money spent. I will use them again.

I have used them for years now and I am always happy with their service. I always save money on my taxes and the fee for their service is very reasonable. The more they save me the more their fee, great incentive to go fight for decreasing my taxes. They always communicate thru email and response time is very good. I have never had a reason to have to call them. I like the service they provide and the long term savings I will enjoy for years to come

While the property tax service is great. I would like a little more feedback on how the final amount was determined. I would like to know the service is doing its best to obtain the lowest valuation possible.

These positive reviews have to be fabricated. Try calling them, anytime during business hours. They never answer. First red flag. Secondly, they will charge you 295.00 for their service and 'refund the difference' if they cannot save you any money. So basically you're not gaining anything and they are pocketing whatever they can lower your appraisal for. So they get paid either way. UPDATE - While I still cannot recommend them for myself anyway, I have to give them kudos for making a bad situation right. Actually going WAY beyond what they had to do in order to make amends. I would also recommend checking your area to see what average saving protesting your taxes will get you and not going with the flat fee option. Best of luck.

I moved into my new house 3 years ago after moving from a post Hurricane Harvey flooded home. Since moving I have been using Texas Tax Protest for 2 years. It was in my estimation that being a new house, I did not expect them to move the needle down on the House value, but to my surprise they did – each year lowering my taxes. I have been absolutely pleased and very happy with their service. My percent reduction has been more than 10%. All I can say is that these people “rock”. If you want someone to fight for you and see results, this is the go-to people. Thank you very much!

While they weren't able to negotiate down my county assessed property value, I was impressed by the responsiveness of their team over email. Since it wasn't successful, I'm also getting my money back.Don't forget to read the contract — unless you cancel, this is effectively a subscription business. As for me, I'll be staying on for the peace of mind.

I am VERY pleased with Texas Tax Protest. If they can't save you money, it is no charge; hardly any other places offer that. Josh Spencer went above and beyond all of my properties, even the ones that I wasn't able to get lowered. He did a very thorough job on all of my properties and got savings on the ones he could. Will continue to use Texas Tax Protest on a go forward basis.. Thank you!!

I am so glad I gave Texas Tax Protest a chance because they got my property taxes lowered more than $300 and now at age 65 the City will cap my taxes at that rate! The process was so much easier and successful than when I tried to protest on my own.

We have been using Texas Tax Protest for five years. This year though they SHONE through for us! Facing close to a 10% raise in property value, they walked us through the painless process of submitting our protest and successfully eliminated the increase. They kept us at our previous value, saving us a nearly $1000 increase in our taxes! They made the process so simple that I am happy to pay their fee and retain them for future years.

Just sign up and that's it, they do all the work and you get money off your taxes, if its possible. OK they take a cut, but they are experts and maybe you could do it yourself, but do you know how or even do you have the time?

So, Covid messed up the time tables of everyone, so letters were a little late this year. I called my taxing authority because I was worried. TTP was as good as their word and dropped my valuation by a pretty good percentage. Glad to have them in my corner.

Dallas property taxes seem to increase every year. Texas Tax Protest did a nice job of doing the research to get the comps in my neighborhood to fight the increase on my behalf. They were incredibly successful, and I would highly recommend using them.

One less thing to worry about. Taxes are too high, and the team at Texas Tax Protest handles the hassles of argument with the County which can be time consuming. Only issue is I wish the amount of savings could be a bit more than we got, but good service. Any savings is better than none.

Why Protest?

Why Protest Your Texas Property Taxes?

 

Your assessed property value may not be accurate as a result of the following:

  1. It’s likely your home has never been individually appraised.

    Instead, the proposed value of your home is based off of a mass appraisal. The appraisal district does not have the manpower or time available to appraise each and every home.

  2. Assessed home values are sensitive to economy growth & decline.

    When the economy grows, your local appraisal district increases values but when the economy declines it is reluctant to reduce your valuation.

  3. Homes that sold at foreclosure can now be used to reduce your property value.

    Effective January 1, 2010, the chief appraiser in appraising a residence homestead may not exclude comparable homes that sold at foreclosure in any of the three years preceding the tax year.

  4. You’re responsible for the burden of proof for property value.

    A Texas law now prohibits the chief appraiser from increasing the appraised value of the property in the following tax year unless the increased value is reasonably supported by SUBSTANTIAL evidence or by presenting evidence showing that an inequality in the appraisal of property was correct. The burden of proof is on the chief appraiser to support an increase under these circumstances. If the District can’t present substantial evidence, your value cannot be increased.

Every home is different so if you expect to reduce your property tax burden you will need custom analysis of your home, comprehensive analysis of your neighborhood, analysis of comparable properties to your home, and a strategy when meeting with the central appraisal district.
