North Texas homeowners have watched their property values steadily rise over the past few years. Many of us were in for a big surprise when we received our 2016 tax valuation statement this week. Collin County home values rose tremendously, but other counties saw big climbs too. 

Disputing taxes is not difficult, but the process is very specific - make sure you understand the timeline and procedure. As with most things, documentation and good record-keeping will strengthen your appeal. Every home is different, every home is unique, so don't make the mistake of comparing your home's estimate to your neighbor's - it's not that simple.  

If you're planning to dispute your taxes, which I always recommend you do, then you'll want to read this article from Dallas Morning News. We're happy to help if you have questions about your home's value or if you need a quick market analysis. You can call or email one of our group members for assistance. And remember, you have to file your protest by May 31st.

Good luck!
