WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR VALUE NOTICE

First, contact your property tax consultant to ensure an appeal is being filed. Second, send your consultant all relevant information to value the property if you have not done so already. Then establish a value you believe the property should be assessed at based on a market and equity approach.

TEXAS PROPERTY TAX APPEAL PROCESS

Texas owners and investors of commercial real estate and business personal property should have a formal plan to appeal their notices of value every year. Invoke recommends working with experienced Texas-based property tax consultants to navigate the traditional appeal cycle.
