Property taxes are a major source of revenue for local governments in Texas, but they can also be a heavy burden for property owners. If you think your property tax appraisal is too high or unfair compared to similar properties in your area, you have the right to challenge it through the property tax appeal process. By appealing your property tax assessment, you may be able to lower your appraised value and reduce your property tax bill. This can save you money and help you avoid penalties and interest if you fail to pay your taxes on time. Appealing your property tax assessment also ensures that the appraisal district is using accurate and up-to-date information about your property and that it is following the law and the Texas Tax Code.
