Property Owner Notification

Owners of business personal property in Tarrant County, Texas are warned that completing the Tarrant County Appraisal District form as requested is not a good idea. It will likely cause you to pay double the correct level of property taxes. I feel so strongly about this I wrote the book (What You Need To Know About Personal Property Valuation) listed below and available on Amazon.

Owners of personal property, used for the production of income, aka business personal property, are required to “render” property annually or face a 10% penalty.

Business owners are warned not to complete the rendition form in the manner requested by the appraisal district. Doing so will roughly double your Business Personal Property (BPP) taxes. For professional assistance in preparing your business personal property tax rendition, visit us

BPP consultations are free. You can also call: 713 375 4399

When Should I Protest for Tarrant County Appraisal District?

Protest your Tarrant County property, all of it, by May 15. The deadline is supposed to be extended. But there are no guarantees it will be.

Frequently Ask Question: Will Covid-19 or $20 Oil Impact Tarrant County Property Taxes?

Short answer is NO. Tarrant County Appraisal District (TAD), for purposes of property taxes, will not consider Covid-19 or $20 oil prices, due to the January 1, 2020 valuation date. Tarrant Central Appraisal District will give no relief in 2020 for either Covid-19 or $20 oil. To be fair to Tarrant Central Appraisal District, they do not have discretion in reducing values for hardship.

Your property taxes will be aggressively appealed every year by the #1 property tax firm in the country. If your taxes are not reduced you PAY NOTHING, and a portion of the tax savings is the only fee you pay when your taxes are reduced! Many FREE benefits come with enrollment.
