The appraisal district budgets are substantial, but the attention to the typical property is minimal. Appraisal districts use mass appraisal computer models to set property tax values, but there are errors in the data and the model. These errors provide opportunity for property owners. The model does not account for atypical properties and allow basis for appeal on unequal appraisal. Owners protest about 60% of the total market value of accounts. Owners protest ~75% of commercial property value but only about 25% of homeowners appeal property taxes annually. An annual property tax appeal is important due to the vagaries of the process due to the people factor. Level the playing field by enrolling in the Property Tax Protection Program™.
