Free classes on lowering your property tax from our good friend Tax Assessor Cheryl Johnson

Here is some timely information from our award-winning Republican Tax Assessor Cheryl Johnson. Cheryl is doing her part to help you keep more of your hard-earned tax money.

If you believe the value of your property as determined by the Appraisal District (CAD) exceeds the market value, you have the right to protest. Cheryl has been providing these free classes since 2005 helping property owners understand the process, decide whether they should protest, and how to prepare in order to be more effective.

Protesting your property's value is the most immediate form of tax relief. This is a reappraisal year and, assuming sales information is available, it is likely we will see property values increase. Whether the value increases or not, there are numerous things that you can do that may save you some money come tax time later this year.

The award winning class, "Effectively Protesting Your Property's Appraised Value for Taxes," will be taught throughout the County during the months of April and May. As additional classes are offered, the information will be released to the media and posted at each Tax Office and on the website. Groups interested in hosting classes should contact the Tax Assessor's office at 1-877-766-2284 to schedule a program.
