Have you received your Property Tax Information and Notice of Protest in the mail? Perhaps your's did not include the picture my granddaughter drew which I felt accurately summarizes how we all feel about it. While it is an inconvenience, I encourage everyone to at least attempt to protest your taxes. The first step can often be done online or by completing the form they send to you. The deadline is May 15th to file your protest.
I have been protesting my taxes the past few years on my own. While I may have spent more time and money than I saved, it is a moral victory when they lower it...even some. Here is some of what I've learned....
DID YOU FLOOD DURING HARVEY? In an article in Sunday's Houston Chronicle it stated that some appraisal districts are not attempting to identify properties that flooded during Harvey and are relying on homeowners to "self report". All the more reason to get the word out!
While my track record would show I am not an expert on protesting property taxes, I hope these hints will motivate you. Doesn't hurt to try!
