3 Steps to Take if You Did Not Receive the Hearing Notice

9th May 2014

Have you been waiting to get the hearing notice for your property tax protest and not received it until now? Unfortunately, this tends to be a common problem. The best thing to do to ensure that you get your hearing notice and to be sure that none of the oh-so-important paperwork is filled out and submitted to the proper sources within the time given is to check out your options for Houston Property Tax Protests.

#1 – So You Didn't Receive Your Hearing Notice

If you haven’t received your hearing notice, the very first thing that you can do is to call the appraisal district to see if it was sent and which address it was sent. Most of the time, the people at the appraisal district office will tell you that there is nothing that can be done. Don't listen to them because they are wrong.

#2 - Choosing to Fight Your Property Tax Assessment

You have two options at this point. The first option is to walk away and let the government keep you down. The other option is to stand your ground and fight.

If you choose to fight, then that leads you to two more options. The first one is to do it alone. You can spend hours trying to get an appeal, filing paperwork, making sure that all of your T's are crossed and your I's are dotted, and that everything is signed, filed and everything else on the appraisal district's schedule...not yours. Keep in mind that since they adhere to government office hours, you will more than likely to be missing work to get everything done as well as to attend the hearing in the event of an appeal.

The other option at this point is to hire someone to help you. There are a great many pros to doing it this way and you can see many of them at Harris County, Texas property Appraisal. Needless to say, by choosing this option, you will save yourself a lot of time, headache and hassle.

#3 - Hiring A Property Tax Firm to Protest for You.

Now that you know your options, the third thing that you can do is make the decision: are you going to go it alone or are you going to get the help you need to see this through? If you still don't feel that you have enough information to make an informed decision about this, you can always look up some Texas Property Tax Information. You should definitely have enough information by the time you look through those queries.

In short, missing out on receiving the hearing notice can actually be a good thing if it means that you can finally find someone who can take the hassle and headache out of making sure that you get your property tax protest taken care of correctly.
