Bolivar residents filled the Crenshaw School cafeteria on Monday to hear Galveston County Tax Assessor Cheryl Johnson lead a class in how to protest the appraised value of your property. For many, recent property tax appraisals have increased dramatically and this class outlined the process and techniques available for protesting the appraisal.
You can and should appeal if you believe the value determined by a county appraisal district is more than what you could sell your property for:
-because of the real estate market,
-beacuse of the condition of the property, or
-the value is out of line with comparable properties in your area.
