HarrisCounty Tax Appraisal – 2021

Harris County Appraisal District's 2021 budget was $93 million, 44% up from $64 million in 2013. The Harris CAD budget is $50 per tax parcel.

How Good Can a $50 Value Be?

The appraisal district budgets are substantial, but the attention to the typical property is minimal. Appraisal districts use mass appraisal computer models, but there are errors in the data and the model. These errors provide opportunity for property owners. Harris County owners protest about 58% of the total market value of accounts valued by Harris County Appraisal District. However, protests are skewed to multifamily and commercial with relatively few homeowners appealing. Fully 100% of multifamily owners and 88% of commercial owners protested the "estimated mass appraisal value" from Harris County Appraisal District in 2021. However, only 39% of homeowners appealed in 2021. Level the playing field by enrolling in the Property Tax Protection Program. No upfront costs or flat fees. Pay only if you save.
