Comptroller’s office good tool to get taxpayer information
CAMERON—The Texas Comptroller’s office has released the 2013 publication Property Taxpayer Remedies, a reference guide for property taxpayers which addresses property tax basics, providing a step by step guide on preparing for a protest hearing and what they can do if they are dissatisfied with an appraisal review board’s decision.
“As a taxpayer, you should know your rights and understand the options available to you under the law,” said Texas Comptroller Susan Combs. “The Property Taxpayer Remedies publication is a resource of information for a sometimes complicated process.”
Property Taxpayer Remedies also provides key dates so property owners know when they are required to act to exercise their right to protest, how to protest property value and what can be protested. The guide explains how to prepare for a protest hearing including what kind of evidence one needs to bring to their hearing.
Property Taxpayer Remedies is a free guide available from the Milam Appraisal District at 120 N. Houston Avenue, Cameron, TX 76520; (254)697-6638.
The publication is also available from the Comptroller’s Property Tax Assistance Division, 800-252- 9121 or www.window.state.tx.us/ taxinfo/proptax/.
