Is your County Residential Property Tax Appraisal too high? Prissy Maher, Ebby Halliday Realtors, provided insights as to how to effectively protest an appraisal. She recommends filing the protest immediately and having the meeting with an appraiser as soon as possible after the April 15th initial filing date. You should have comparable properties and pictures to offer as proof of the value of your property. Obtain the comparable properties that the county utilized and contrast these with your comparables. She does not recommend pursuing a hearing with the appraisal board as it rarely awards any relief. Prissy is glad to assist in obtaining comparable properties and highlighting the differences.
