With the new year beginning, property owners in Harris County will soon receive a notice of the value the Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) has placed on their home as of January 1, 2014.
HCAD offers a valuable service to REALTOR® clients – HCAD will visit with your clients about tax protesting. Your clients can be educated on the property tax appraisal process and system. Texas law guarantees property owners the right to protest that value if the owner think it’s incorrect. This is a great opportunity for your clients to better understand tax protesting in Harris County.
If you would like your clients to take advantage of this HCAD service, contact Roland Altinger, Deputy Chief Appraiser, at (713) 957-7800.
In addition, HCAD has produced several online videos designed to help explain the district’s role in the Texas property tax system, our operations and programs, and to provide information on various appraisal-related topics. You may share these videos with your clients.
