Protests
One of your most important rights as a taxpayer is your right to protest your property value to the appraisal review board (ARB). You may protest if you disagree with the appraisal district value or any of the appraisal district’s actions concerning your property.
Exemptions
Property tax in Texas is a locally assessed and locally administered tax. There is no state property tax. Property tax brings in the most money of all taxes available to local government to pay for schools, roads, police and firemen, emergency response services, libraries, parks and other services provided by local government. But exemptions provide a mechanism for you to lower the taxable value on your property.
