1. Was the same offer made to protesting homeowners who did not use a property tax agency? It seems tcad has a very comfortable relationship with these agencies. A homeowner trying to protest their home alone has very little they can do. They can’t do the adjustments, they are shot down when they bring in realtor comps because price per square foot isn’t used to appraise, and now agents don’t really even need to work if tcad gives them a blanket reduction. Does anyone else see a problem with this?

  2. Thanks for your question, Angry Homeowner. The answer is no, TCAD did not make offers to property owners who weren’t represented by property tax agents. This appears to have been a desperate gambit to finally get the appraisal roll certified. As I wrote in the story, this was the first time in three years that the Appraisal Review Board and TCAD managed to meet that goal.
