HCAD 2020 Property Tax Protests

HCAD property taxes were cut by about $694 million by owners who protested in 2020. This includes both informal and appraisal review board hearings. This does not include savings from judicial appeals which generated an additional $230 million in savings in 2020.

Are You Appealing?

Owners accounting for about 60% of the taxable value protest annually. However, only 24% of property owners by account protest. Owners of large commercial properties appeal and reduce their property taxes annually. You can save too. In a typical year, 60 to 80% of property owners who protest are successful. No minimum account size in Texas. Enroll today in Property Tax Protection Program™ and never miss another protest deadline. No upfront cost. No flat fees. No fees for market value reductions that don’t reduce your property taxes. You will benefit from lower taxes in most years based on our experience. Get your share of the ~$700 million in property tax savings from protests at Harris County Appraisal District.
