Harris County Appraisal District 2021 Houses Property Tax Protest Summary

Harris County Appraisal District received property tax protests in 2021 from owners of $122 billion of houses, out of a total of $316 billion. Fully 39% of houses were protested based on Harris CAD noticed value. Owners of more expensive homes are more likely to protest than owners of typical homes. Owners of commercial, apartments and utilities are much more likely to protest. Owners of 88% of commercial, 100% of multifamily and 90% of utilities appealed, based on value. This large portion of utility, commercial and multifamily owners consistently appeal annually for one reason; it works.

Do You Know the Secret?

The secret is simple; owners who appeal their property taxes annually benefit from property tax savings about 70 to 90% of years. The appraisal district puts up a new number most years, and it still unless you content it. You can contest it on your own successfully, and if you do so annually, you will be successful. 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.
