Harris County Appraisal District 2022 Industrial Personal Property Tax Protest Summary

Ten percent of the basic property tax is paid in Harris County property taxes on industrial property. Refineries, chemical processing, and manufacturing/fabrication are all considered industrial. In 2022 property owners of Harris County industrial property protested 72% of the total value. Industrial property protested totaled $56 billion out of $78 billion in 2022. The percentage of accounts that have been challenged is more than usual, although only 12% of industrial property has had a court appeal. In contrast, 42% of commercial and 77% of multifamily properties filed legal appeals submitted in court appeals by property owners.
