Property Taxes …Do You Fight Them?

1-21-15 Flag-Backgroud-Piggy

Are you shocked this year? You have probably received your 2015 Notice of Appraised Value by now. Looks like everyones taxes are going up..up..up! Dave Lieber stated “I’m stumped that only about 5 out of every 100 eligible homeowners use the new tool of protesting property taxes online at an appraisal district’s website. It’s easy, saves time and feels like gambling, for those who like that.”

Don’t forget that you can protest your taxes. Deadline is June 1, 2015. Your residence homestead is protected from appraisal value increases in excess of 10% per year from the date of the last appraisal PLUS the value of any new improvements.

Here is a calculator that may help you determine the % CHANGE.
