Workshops to educate residents on ways to combat rising appraisal values
Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan announced today a new series of Property Tax Workshops to educate property owners on ways to reduce their tax burden through protesting, exemptions and more.
“Many property owners have already received their appraisal notice from the Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) and I know they are very concerned about the rising appraisal values,” said Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan. “With new residents moving to our area every year, I’m inviting every homeowner to attend our Property Tax Workshops, which will discuss ways they can reduce their appraisal values through exemptions and protesting their values. I want to ensure taxpayers understand their rights and are fully prepared before they protest.”
The Property Tax Workshops are open to the public and will discuss how to protest property taxes, learn what exemptions are available and how to apply for a payment plan for delinquent tax bills. Staff from the Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office and the Harris County Appraisal District will be available to answer questions.
If a resident has questions about the Property Tax Workshops, they can call our office at (713) 274-8000 or email [email protected]. The last day to file a property tax protest is June 1, 2015. Please see the schedule below:
