That makes sense, but I like to get it out of the way. Don't like having it hanging over my head from April to August or September.

What is the general consensus on who to use for protesting (other than myself)? I will not use O'Connor as they failed to file a protest on my behalf in a previous year. My house is already the lowest value on the whole block but since I received my full 10% I figured we should go through the motions. We live in Friendswood if it matters.

Mine is still showing pending. Is this normal? Any idea what it means? Hopefully it doesn't mean I'm about to get roasted.

They're looking for a legal loophole to raise it beyond the limit. T&P.

Sawemoff, please let me know how your informal goes. I have an informal in a week. HCAD offered 32K, but Jubally says $97k.

Click "nearby addresses". Have your neighbors been valuated?

Well, this is a first.

I gave an iFile suggested value of last year's number (after a $48k increase this year). I just got back their counter of $10k below my offered value.

Can you copy past what you put in the ifile? I'd like to copy your strategy.

Surprisingly I just got an iSettle offer matching my proposed amount. That's a shocker and certainly has never happened to me before in the 10 years I have been protesting. Roughly a $20K reduction in their 2021 appraisal value...zip 77079

How long ago did you submit your iFile with your proposed value? I just submitted mine on Monday and did the same thing.

apparently, the "typical" method for responding to iFile protests is higher value first. Not sure how accurate that is, but the crappy condo I protested has been sitting in their system for 6+ weeks..

I wish I had some magic technique. I just put last year's value, checked that it was overmarket and mentioned "plumbing issues" in my details.

I filed mine April 16.

I did iFile on March 18. Just asked them to lower it back to what it was last year. I've been successful with this approach a couple of previous times, but I have not heard back on this year's request, yet.

I am 6/6 using Jubally so far, hitting their number. So I am (cautiously) optimistic and hopeful this trend continues. 10 comps supporting, so should be quick I hope. My average once being called in is something like 12 minutes.

Looks like my post summoned the HCAD gods. Got my isettle offer. It's $2200 more than what I asked for and $14k less than what they tried to raise it to, so I guess I'll accept.

Well my ifile finally come back and they held the line on 10% increase in 77079. What's the name of the protest company y'all like again?

Got my down around 7.5% on our condo using iSettle. It was definitely overvalued but process was simple so I won't complain.

Just submitted my protest. Hope the iSettle gods are kind.

They bumped me from 325-368 market. 358 appraisal. Jubally told me 342 although sales comps was 330 so I used that. If I get 335/340 I'll probably take it.

Not a fan of state income tax, only because I've lived in several states where it all got squandered away and the state was perpetually broke. At least with property taxes, I kind of know where my money is going.

Seems like there could be some kind of decent compromise with property taxes, though. Either freeze them until the property sells again (and if the value has gone up significantly, a tax increase is justified) or maybe move to a model where houses are reappraised every 5 years, using an average of the comps sold during that time.

But this yearly model of increases, protests, values lowered, only to wash, rinse, repeat the next year is a huge waste of time and resources on both sides.

Let's at least make the CAD's job a little harder.


Didn't Abbott and Patrick run on limiting residential appraisals to a 3% annual cap when they initially ran for Governor and Lt Governor?

They ran on percent increase of the tax itself.

So the CADs have to raise values.

I got the email too. But still think the increase is too high and will go to the informal. I am not optimistic.

Same zip code here. Going to do this now. What boxes did you check, etc? Just curious if there are any tips I can use for the same area.
