I felt it more this yr than ever... my values here in Austin have doubled in the last 4 years to the point that it is seriously unaffordable for a single person to own a house and some land.

My office building went up $600k and on a recent appraisal at the bank is worth $700k less than what the city is saying. Also, went up $120k on a vacant lot I own. My restaurant went down $80k which is near the vacant lot and on a prime corner. They must like my cheeseburgers! Haha. This is in New Braunfels

Had to re-apply for ag exemption this year, was nervous at first but turned out to be a great deal because we were able to clean up some things that were not filed correctly when we broke out the home site and saved on taxes

Here's what people always forget. Fighting your appraisal is only half the battle. Nobody bothers to show up when the city, county, etc. has their budget hearings. That's the one that matters. If all the appraisals go up the tax rate should come down. But they don't. It's always a windfall for the taxing entities because nobody shows up to demand that the tax rate be adjusted downward when appraisals get raised. Politicians bloviate about the great job they are doing because they kept the tax rate the same. Show up at the budget hearings and demand that they make do with what they collected the previous year.

Got ours today. Value in 2020 was 378,714. We bought the place in Jan 2020 and it appraised by the bank at 425,000. Appraisal for 2021 is 441,919.

Yes I am going to fight this. Total BS!

How successful is this argument? If the appraisals are going up, its usually a sign that more people are moving to the area which would then mean more public services are required (better roads, schools, etc.). So I would think the budget committee would work to at least hold the tax rate the same to accommodate the increased need for public services. Perhaps my thinking is flawed but curious to your thoughts.

Last year mine basically stayed the same, this year it went up, but still under market value and less than it was appraised for when we refinanced this past year. Iíll just keep my mouth shut.

You would probably be surprised what's in their budgets. Just a smaller version of congressional budgets. Always places where money is being spent that isn't necessary. Do you thing that the federal government is the only ones that have "pork" in them. Would you let someone control your bank account and never check to see where the money is being spent. Yet nobody cares when it comes to local government spending their tax dollars. Budget hearings are open to the public. Hardly anybody shows up. If enough people showed interest things could change for the better.

Reading all these comments I don't want to go to the mailbox. Hopefully ours will stay the same this year.

The entire system needs to be overhauled IMO. Of course they won't do it but it needs to happen. Too many exemptions and as usual "free" or reduced for others means a small concentration of people carry the load for everyone because "we can afford it".

A buddy of mine used to work for Novotny and Company. You might check them out. Bettancourt has a good rep. Pat OíConnor and Novotny have been around a long time.

In most instances, even if you think it wonít change much, itís still beneficial to protest. Itís also helpful if you get a bunch of your neighbors to protest as well.

If you want to do it yourself, take pictures of everything thatís wrong with your house and property. A picture is worth a thousand words, but be careful not to include anything good/cool in the background. Like, donít show them a picture of a crack in your driveway with the boat, ATV, and nice truck in the background.

If bought last year, you should be use that price as the market value. They have to use comps for their price and recently sold exact house is hard to argue itís worth more.

Just looked mine up, and they raised land from 14k to 24/k per acre. Thatís always a hard thing to prove as there is never a replacement option and lots always sell for high values for new builds in area.

Mine went up $46k, thats after fighting it last year and the year before.

It has gotten so out of hand. Makes me want to run for Galveston County Tax Assessor Collector. Her house is about $200k undervalued on the tax rolls....interesting.

btw Oconner and Associates are a waste of time unless your assessed value has caught up with the appraised.

Well if you donít want to keep paying the 10% every year. then you should protest. If you donít complain they have no reason to not charge it.

I had my appraisal lowered by $18k in protest last year.

Only thing I have seen help with protests is pictures of current damages that need repair. Roof leaks and damage, cracks in walls and foundations, and major damage. Ugly interior doesnít count and they donít move by much when they do. Iíve protested and used all the comps and tore them down. I can tell you that ponds and water front donít ďaffectĒ land value, attached garage vs carport? Nope. I even had 60k more land value over someone because thereís was ag exempt so not included in the comp or their sale price I guess (must have been free with purchase). showed that my nieghbor house was Ď78 and mine Ď82 and he was $99/sf and I was $135/sf t
and the same as neighbors Ď18 custom build and they didnít budge. They said they should have been higher on my house!! Finally had a roof leak next year that I had pictures of and wham! They moved it to $500 lower then they my homestead cap and reminded me next year was a re-evaluation year.

Protest every year regardless of they raise the value or not. Some years the reductions are higher than others. Over time you will find that your assessed value will be at the lower end of the range. The key is to stay vigilant and protest every year.

In the central texas area, every house sold is getting more than asking price. As much as I hate my increase, the market values have most certainly jumped the last 2-3 years. I hate the whole concept of property taxes, it basically punishes those who take care of their stuff & paying taxes every year for a product is ridiculous. Has to be a more equitable system. Flat tax comes to mind.

I'm inside 635 in Dallas near White Rock Lake. My appraised value increased 70% in 4 years with no improvements- all land. I protest yearly but with bare lots in this neighborhood going for $500k, DCAD pretty much laughs.
Don't know who the fools are that are paying those prices, but 100% agree with too many people coming from the coasts and jacking up prices. We are still way cheaper than NY or CA.

Yup. Sometimes it is fairly hard to fight the taxman when they have empirical data. :-). Spoke about this with my wife last night. She was asserting our increase was crazy (Travis Co.). I don’t like it one bit, but rational review of the valuation establishes TCAD has us undervalued by $600-800k. I will file a protest, simply in hopes that they are so inundated by the same that they will offer some reprieve.

Fun game they run every year. Jack up the taxes and "discount" the protesting taxpayer, making them feel good. All about perceived value.
