O’Connor serves more Texas property owners than any other tax consultant because: 

  • O’Connor’s aggressive approach is well aligned with the property owners’ interest. We pay the fees and costs regardless of the level of appeal. Many competitors require the property owner to pay the binding arbitration deposit or costs related to judicial appeal such as legal fees, expert witness fees and court costs. We will not ask you to pay any of the costs or fees related to your property tax protest.
  • Based on conducting millions of tax appeals throughout Texas, we have developed an in-depth understanding of what is needed to reduce your property taxes.
  • You benefit from the millions of Texas property tax appeals completed by O’Connor, using comparable sales data and unequal appraisal data uniquely processed by our proprietary software. The hearing evidence file often totals 50 to 100 pages.
  • Due to our expertise, we have been able to gather sales and uneven appraisal data in a way that complies with the requirements set out by the Bexar County Appraisal Review Board (ARB) and the Bexar County Appraisal District.
