2011 TCAD valuations - LEARN from our mistakes
by langhugh on August 11th, 2011

They are calling it a computer glitch and suggest that all of the efile protests have been taken down from the website. The TCAD representatives still saw that my property was under active protest, and that I would receiving an offer and/or hearing request date BY E-MAIL WITHIN TWO WEEKS.

We e-filed and called TCAD (834-9317) last week to check the status since we hadn't heard anything yet, and were told to look for something late August/early Sept...

But based on Commuter's experience, I'm not holding my breath on having the protest go our way.

After protesting on our own the first couple years, we decided to try one of those professional services this year. It appears he was able to get ours reduced by a pretty good amount.

So there is hope!

Ashley who did you hire and were you notified of your hearing date in case you wanted to be present?

Ian,

I used Josh Bushner - http://www.realappraisalrelief.com/austin-property-tax-consultant-reviews.html

He did not notify me about my hearing date, but I did not ask him to. I suspect he would if that is what you requested.

It was an easy process from my end with him. Just a little bit of paperwork at the beginning, then he handled everything.

Hands up who's happy with their Tax Appraisal value?


This morning, I made a"pre-emptive" visit to the Central Appraisal office and met with Grehg Mahan who manages all East Austin appraisers. Intent was to understand how my house is/will be appraised. I learned a lot and will be better prepared for the next time I question a value. It was easy to get in to see him/someone - I showed up at 7:45 and was sitting at his desk at 7:50.

Dan - Anything you learned that might be helpful for the rest of us who haven't had our hearing yet would be appreciated.

Our protest disappeared online a few weeks ago. As with others, we were assured that it's still in the system. Today I received an email that said "The hearing date for your protest has been scheduled and is available online." When I get online, the protest information is still missing!

I'll have to call tomorrow to find out the scoop.

I learned that I can't trust some of the people at TCAD. Some don't respond, some don't know....... My plan is to visit regularly until I get the information I think we'll need to be prepared for next year. Much of the pertinent info is not available on their website - have to go their and use "their" system which "isn't compatible".
