As a result, the current pandemic will likely have no effect on your 2020 noticed value.
That means it is more important than ever to protest your property taxes!
Comprehensive property tax protest representation and advisory service for individual and institutional investors in Texas. Our expertise includes residential and commercial valuation, plus tax code implications for various zoned commercial property types.
Our property research capability is unmatched. We have developed a proprietary software platform that applies big-data algorithms to analyze millions of data records to gather the facts we need to prepare your tax protest case. We use both Sales Comparable Analysis and Unequal Appraisal methods of analysis.
Our fee is based on the savings we achieve for you. If there are no savings, there is no fee. That way you have the peace of mind that we are working to reduce your assessed value to the best of our ability.
When our clients have questions, they can talk to real people right here in Texas. No automated voice systems, fancy recorded messages or offshore call centers. Just friendly, helpful professionals that work with over 10,000 real estate owners each year to help them reduce their property taxes.
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.
When the economy grows, your local appraisal district increases values but when the economy declines it is reluctant to reduce your valuation.
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.
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.
Avoid the frustrating forms and waiting rooms!

Texas Tax Protest was founded in 2010 with the mission of making the property tax appeal process easier. As a Certified Public Accountant and investor, the founder realized that one of the biggest costs and most important aspects of owning Texas property is often overlooked and rarely discussed. Many property owners are not aware that you can appeal the initial assessment from the county appraisal district and aren’t sure how to make an appeal. Our goal is to make this process easy for everybody. Many of our employees are real estate agents and investors.
