Harris County Property Tax Protest - Apartments

Harris County property tax protests for apartment owners included fully 100% of all Harris County apartments by value, according to data provided by Harris County Appraisal District. The total value of apartments in Harris County rose from $23 billion in 2013 to $53 billion in 2020. HCAD reported a total of $53.4 BB for multifamily market value and $56.2 BB protested in 2020. (Yes, they reported more protested that the total value.) Annual savings from property tax protest for Harris County apartment owners are estimated to be $141 million, up from roughly $60 million in 2013. Harris County property tax savings for all types of property were about $371 million in 2020, including both the informal and appraisal review board hearings (ARB). However, this does not include judicial appeals. Harris County property owners saved another $220 million from judicial appeals.

Why Do 100% of Apartment Owners versus 25% of Homeowners Appeal?

Apartment owners have seen the value of their properties increased by 100 to 200% in the last five years. Apartments are 8% of tax roll and everyone protests. Virtually 100% over apartment owners protest but only 25% of homeowners protest annually. Houses account for 44% of the total value on the tax roll and only a quarter protest. Is that equitable? Even the odds with professional representation by O'Connor. No flat fee. No upfront costs. No market cut fees. No fees ever unless we reduce your property taxes that year.
