Harris County Appraisal District 2022 Utility Property Tax Summary

Property held by private utilities, such as gas and electric, is assessed for taxable value by the Harris Central Appraisal District (CAD). In Harris County, utilities make up $6 billion of the $686 billion in taxable property value in 2022, or 1% of the total. However, 99% of the utility value was protested in 2022. Very few utility accounts end up in binding arbitration or on judicial appeal.
