Property Assessment Protests Spike As Post-Harvey Values Rise

  • November 19, 2019

Harris County property owners have filed more protests disputing the taxable value of their homes and commercial properties this year than at any point in nearly 20 years.

Protests were recorded for more than 412,000 accounts through early August, 11 percent more than in all of 2018, according to data from the Harris County Appraisal District. More may be on the way. The last time protests came that close to this year’s filings was in 2008 when 397,400 were lodged, according to county data going back to 2001.
