Tips to keep your 2022 & 2023 property taxes low
- Homeowners make sure you have applied for the homestead exemptions in your county.
- Have you purchased your house in the last 2 years and the CAD values seem higher than the contract price? Bring the contract to your appraisal district and they will honor the price mentioned on the contract.
- If you had not done any improvement or remodeling but the improvement values have increased then, you have a great chance to lower the values.
