Property tax protests are becoming more common in Austin and its surrounding communities, largely due to today’s competitive, inventory-strapped market. With fewer homes for sale and more bidding wars breaking out, buyers are having to over-pay for properties they want to purchase. In turn, appraisers are over-valuing those properties to ensure lenders will cover the added costs. It’s a vicious cycle that drives up property values and leaves existing homeowners to foot skyrocketing property tax bills year after year.
Fortunately, homeowners in Austin don’t have to take it lying down. In fact, when it comes to property tax protest in Austin, the process is actually quite easy. All you need to do is:
- Fill out our quick, three-minute form. We’ll research your property, its value, and its tax history, and we’ll then file the paperwork to get your protest started.
- We will work behind the scenes with your county or municipality to fight your rising property taxes. We’ll even attend any hearings on your behalf if necessary.
- Finally, we’ll alert you when the county has made a decision. If we don’t get your tax burden lowered, you owe us nothing at all for our work. If we do, we’ll take a small portion of the savings, and the rest is yours to enjoy. Use those extra funds for a night on the town, a vacation, or just to pad that rainy-day fund.
