Have you received your 2018 commercial property tax assessment? Did the valuation fall outside of where you expected? It could be that the value of your property faced a significant change in 2017 and your local appraisal district (Harris County Appraisal District in the Houston area) missed that change somehow. It is your right as a property owner to protest your commercial property valuation and have an appraisal review board hear your case. You can either go through the appeal process yourself or hire a Houston commercial property tax consultant. But no matter how you go about it, keep in mind, the deadline to submit your appeal for review is May 15th.
If you’d like to appeal your commercial property tax assessment yourself, follow these step-by-step instructions:
- File your protest online. Your local appraisal district should have a link on their website. For Houston, you can appeal on the HCAD website.
- Research the value of comparable properties and collect evidence to support the assertion your commercial property assessment was too high.
- Attend the appraisal review board hearing to present your case.
