Final Week of Property Tax Workshops

Help available for taxpayers before the June 1 protest deadline

Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan reminds residents to take advantage of the final two Property Tax Workshops before the protest deadline.

“This year’s Property Tax Workshops have been incredibly popular, with more than 50 people at each location,” said Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan. “We have our final two workshops this week. I encourage every resident to take advantage of these free workshops to learn how to protest their appraisal value before the June 1st deadline.”

The Property Tax Workshops are open to the public and will discuss how to protest property taxes, learn what exemptions are available and how to apply for a payment plan for delinquent tax bills. Staff from the Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office and the Harris County Appraisal District will be available to answer questions.

Residents are also reminded they can protest four ways:
- Online at http://www.hcad.org
- In person by visiting 13013 Northwest Freeway, 77040
- By mail: P.O. Box 922004 Houston, TX 77292-2004
- By hiring a property tax consultant

If a resident has questions about the Property Tax Workshops, they can call our office at (713) 274-8000 or email tax.office@hctx.net. The last day to file a property tax protest is June 1, 2015. Please see the final workshops below:
