Have you taken a look at your 2014 property-tax appraisal yet?
If not, now would be a good time to do it – you only have until the end of this month (May) to file a request for protest!
Texas law allows a property owner the opportunity to protest their appraised value. You can do that in one of three ways: 1) schedule a formal protest meeting with your central appraisal district; 2) file a formal protest online (if your district offers that capability); or 3) go in person now and protest
It is really easy to protest your taxes, yourself.
If you used a good Realtor when you purchased your Home, he/she will be happy to provide you with a CMA of recent sales which are similar in size, or you can email me.
The protest period for Fort Bend County runs from May 1st to Midnight May 31. .
Just fill out the notice of protest, take the list of comparable sales in your neighborhood with your appraisal form and take your case to the Fort Bend office located at
2801 FM 2218 in Rosenberg, or go to www.fbcad.org to protest online.
