Be sure to protest your property tax again this year.
Austin real estate property appraisals have decreased again this year. However, as the City and County struggle to fund employees and projects and under budget restraints, Travis County property taxes are increasing again this year. My primary home has increased tax appraisal another many thousands of dollars again this year as they have every year in the last few years.
Freeman Properties endorsed vendor, Texas ProTax.
You can always protest yourself, be sure to bring a good argument, photos, and good reasons why your property should be devalued per Travis County appraisal.
Last year, Texas ProTax saved me a total Property Tax savings for 3 combined properties on 10/19/2011 of $540.85 and a fee of $216.34
