Property taxes are a Texas-sized problem. What can you do to protect your wallet and keep your home?
- If you’re a homeowner, make sure your principal residence has a homestead exemption in place.
- Protest your property tax appraisal.
For most homeowners, the deadline to file your notice of protest is May 15 – but make sure to check with your specific appraisal district to know for sure.
- Call for a taxpayer timeout.
Local officials everywhere should be encouraged to adopt the no-new-revenue tax rate which will keep your tax burden steady (if not lower it) and still bring in money for government.
It’s time to let taxpayers catch their breath and help businesses keep their doors open.
