How to Protest your Property Taxes in Tarrant County
I have compiled everything you need to know about how to appeal the valuation of a property and how, when, and why property taxes are levied. As a property owner and state certified appraiser in Tarrant county, I know the most efficient method to lower your taxes is with an appraisal. But let me explain the appeal process and how to let the appraisal do most of the leg work for you.
But how do you get set up to utilize your appraisal as a means of protest and what else should you do? Taxpayers protesting their valuation should ask appraisal district staff about their property’s value and ask questions about items they don’t understand, the comptroller suggests. Protestors should be on time for the hearing, avoid emotional appeals and stick to the facts. They also should review the hearing procedures and present their information in a simple and well-organized manner.
