Hello! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you today but please note this is general information only, not legal advice.
I am sorry you are dealing with this situation, it is frustrating when property tax value increases. There are two routes that homeowners
typically take: (1) appeal the assessment on their own, or (2) retain local counsel to assist with the appeal.
Here is the Comptroller's link to forms to appeal the assessment: http://comptroller.texas.gov/taxinfo/proptax/protests.html
Experts agree not to refer matters to themselves or specific law firms/lawyers as a condition to being permitted to assist folks on this website. However, we can give general referral resources to aid in your search. The Texas Bar Association
has a lawyer referral service that can assist you with locating a local real estate
lawyer in your area: https://www.texasbar.com/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Lawyer_Referral_Service_LRIS_
In addition, here is a good informative article written by a law firm that handles matters regarding property assessment in Texas: http://www.poconnor.com/texas_property_tax_appeals_steps.asp
All my best & encouragement.
