Ultimate Homeowner's Guide to Tax Appraisals
The ultimate homeowner's guide to property tax appraisals in Austin, Texas.
If you own a home in Texas, you know that this property tax appraisal season. You’ve probably already gotten your tax appraisal for 2022 and, if you’re like most people, you were surprised by how high it was. Each year I usually teach a workshop on how to protest your tax appraisal. But this year, I feel that most people have no reason to protest because of their homestead exemption. So instead, I focused the webinar on a variety of topics related to the appraisals: how we ended up with appraisals this high, the importance of the homestead exemption, what to do if you bought your house in 2021, what to do if you own investment property, how the appraisals will impact the real estate market, and what to expect from tax rates later this year. You can find the webinar on the RealEstateInAustin YouTube channel. It’s also linked from wherever you are watching this video. I’m Craig Smyser with 1835 Realty.
