Property Owner Alert

Both Galveston Central and Harris County Appraisal Districts mailed postcards with a link to view how much your 2020 taxes could be if local governments adopt the rates they are proposing. Most governments are in the process of proposing rates so you can expect an update of the CAD databases daily.

For information about the Assessment (calculation) phase please click on the link at left "Truth in Taxation". The names, email addresses and telephone numbers of every elected official, as well as the official contact information for each government is posted on that page along with the 2020 tax calculations and public hearing notices when available. Also included at the bottom of this page is the public hearing schedule.

Please participate! NOW is the time for you to have the second greatest impact on what your 2020 taxes will be - the first was protesting your property value! The transparency of property taxation was transformed with passage of Senate Bill 2 in the 85th Legislative Session. Now it is up to you!

Effectively Protest Property Value

Classes are over as is the opportunity to protest the value for 2020 unless there is a substantial error on the part of the CAD. Prepare for next year by downloading and reading the booklet. The spreadsheet posted below is explained in the booklet. It, in combination with the spreadsheet, provides all of the tools needed to effectively lower your property value.
