The secret is simple; homeowners who appeal their property taxes benefit from property tax savings about 85 to 86% of respective year taxes are appealed. Every year the appraisal district sets a new number, and it will remain the same unless you contest it. Few homeowners will appeal their taxes on their own annually.
