HidalgoCounty Tax Appraisal – 2021

The Hidalgo County Appraisal District budget for 2021 has been amended to $9 M. This is a 42% increase from the $6 M budget for 2013. Hidalgo Central Appraisal District expenditures are $28 per tax parcel, which is part of the appraisal district’s budget.

Considering the $28 spend per parcel, what can you expect?

In spite of the substantial budgets of appraisal districts, the typical property gets minimal attention. It is common for appraisal districts to use mass appraisal computer models, but these models and data contain errors. These errors can be used by property owners to their advantage. Approximately 29% of the market value of accounts valued by the Hidalgo County Appraisal District are protested by owners in Hidalgo County. As far as protests go, the majority are held by commercial and multifamily owners; relatively few homeowners are involved. The "estimated mass appraisal value" provided by Hidalgo County Appraisal District in 2021 was protested by 67% of multifamily owners and 70% of commercial owners. In 2021, however, only 17% of homeowners appealed their property tax bills. If you would like to level the playing field for yourself, you can enroll in the Property Tax Protection Program™.
