How successful are property tax protests in Texas?

April 13, 2023

The success rate of property tax protests in Texas varies depending on a number of factors, such as the quality and strength of evidence presented, the reason for the protest, and the specific appraisal district in question. 

According to the Texas Comptroller's Office, approximately 43% of property owners who protest their market values and appear at their scheduled ARB hearing are successful in obtaining a lower value and, consequently, a lower tax bill. But owners who protest their own property values have a significantly higher rate of failure to appear for their hearing and a lower rate of success at their hearing than do those who use agents. Last year, Property Tax Protest had an 83% success rate in obtaining market value reductions for our clients.  

However, success rates can vary significantly by region and even by individual appraisal district. For example, some appraisal districts may be more open to reducing appraised values than others, and some regions may have more competitive real estate markets or higher property values, making it more difficult to successfully protest appraisals.

It's important to note that the protest process in Texas can be complex, and it may be helpful to seek the service of a professional, such as Property Tax Protest, to handle the entire process and provide consultancy specific to your property.
