Harris County Appraisal District 2020 Houses Property Tax Protest Summary

Harris County Appraisal District received property tax protests in 2020 from owners of $115 billion of houses, out of a total of $385 billion. Fully 95% of houses were protested based on HCAD noticed value. Owners of more expensive homes are more likely to protest than owners of typical homes. While 95% of home value was protested, only about 25% of homeowners appealed. Contrast this to the owners of 92% of utilities and 70 to 80% of commercial / multifamily owners appealing. This large portion of utility, commercial and multifamily owners consistently appeal annually for one reason; it works. Owners save about $700 million annually from property tax protests at Harris County. Do you realize property tax savings annually?

Do You Know the Secret?

The secret is simple; Harris County owners who appeal their property taxes annually benefit from property tax savings about 60 to 80% of years. The appraisal district puts up a new number (“proposed value”) most years, and it sticks unless you contest it. You can contest it successfully on your own, and if you do so annually, you will be save substantial property taxes. My experience over 39 years is that few owners will appeal on their own annually. They have other priorities; property taxes are a despised tax, to be minimized. Let us do it for you if you are not protesting on your own. There are no upfront costs. No flat fees. Never pay anything unless we reduce your property taxes that year. Enroll today in the Property Tax Protection Program™; don't miss another property tax protest deadline.
