We are considering using a service to protest our property taxes. Does anyone have a company they used that they would recommend or alternatively, why we should not use such a company?

Leila... We use ProTax - http://texasprotax.com
They helped us the past 3 years and we have been happy with the service. Good luck!

Do you happen to remember their price structure? Is it 33%/50% of savings?

Their website fails to deliver this basic piece of information. Thanks.

Woah! I would negotiate down. I pay 25% to Texas ProTax. Worth a shot.

Wow! Really? I have not been that impressed with them so far, but MIGHT use them if they took their rate down to 25%. Thanks for the info. I just received the contract today. Glad I didn't sign it yet! I held off after reading their rate... Ugh.

Ok, fwiw, I called them and the guy told me that high-rise condos are a 25% fee, houses are 40%, and REALLY our house should, in addition to the 40%, also have a flat fee associated with it since there's basically no way they're going to be able to argue it down for us since the appraisal is so much higher than the cap. Any other thoughts??

That stinks! I have no clue! Makes me want to check mine...but we've had a flat 25%, only if they get it down. Maybe want to shop around? Get a group deal with neighbors?
