(HOUSTON) — The tax man in Harris County would like to help you lower your property tax bill.

Property appraisals were flat for several years, but Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan says that has changed rather dramatically.

“As the economy has picked up, of course we know we have tens of thousands of people moving to Harris County. You have all this new explosion in new home construction, multi-family construction, everything is driving values up,” Sullivan said.

So, Sullivan is launching property tax workshops in different parts of the county over the next several weeks to show homeowners how you can protest your property appraisal and if successful lower your tax bill.

The workshops will discuss how to protest property taxes, learn what exemptions are available and how to obtain a payment agreement for delinquent tax bills.

“The last day to file a property tax protest is June 2,” Sullivan said. “I encourage taxpayers to take full advantage of these property tax workshops. I want to ensure that taxpayers understand their rights and are prepared so they can protest their appraisals.”
