Property Owner Notification

Owners of business personal property in Travis County, Texas are warned that completing the Travis 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.

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

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

Short answer is NO. Travis 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. Travis Central Appraisal District will give no relief in 2020 for either Covid-19 or $20 oil. To be fair to Travis Central Appraisal District, they do not have discretion in reducing values for hardship.
