Travis County Central Appraisal District – 2020

Travis County Tax Protests are heard by the Travis Central Appraisal Review Board. They represent themselves as "separate and apart" from Travis CAD but receive payroll checks from Travis CAD. Is it fair to ask someone to be impartial when one of the parties pays their salary? Travis Central Appraisal District staff are instrumental in scheduling both informal and formal (appraisal review board) protests.

Travis County Tax Protests Payoff Huge

Total property tax savings from informal and appraisal review board hearings totaled about $165.57 MM in 2020, with about $136.76 MM as a result of appraisal review board tax protest hearings. Travis County tax protests generated saving of about $28.81 million during 2020 through informal settlements with an appraisal district appraiser.

Large owners have a tax consultant. Do You?

Large owners understand property taxes and the vast majority hire third party consultants to appeal their property taxes. Some Fortune 500 firms have inhouse experts but likely 95% of commercial property owners hire a property tax consultant to appeal their property taxes. The reasons are simple: 1) property taxes are a huge expense and 2) recent increases in taxable value have been huge, and 3) most property tax appeals are successful. Home owners save 18% and commercial owners save 81% in 2020.
