Property Tax “Increases” are Out of Control?

12 DEC 2018 – Got a little excited when I first saw this in yesterday’s mail. That is until I glanced at their website to see what solution they were proposing… well, Hallelujah! Another better-managed process for our bondage.

But surprise! This is coming from the Texas Association of Realtors.

Our property tax reform plan includes:
– Lowering the rollback rate to no more than 5%
– Support real truth-in-taxation transparency
– Eliminate the petition requirement for rollback elections
– Moving all revenue related elections to November
– Repeal the five-year “lookback” tax collection system
– Ensuring all property taxpayers are treated on a “uniform and equal” basis by appraisal districts.

All this and… we still never own our property.

Nevertheless, I signed the petition to follow their status. (“Sign up to learn more about potential solutions to ensure more transparency in our property tax system, when the next public committee hearing is scheduled, and to receive updates”).

I’ll be sending them a “potential solution” soon.

No Relief. No Reform. #EliminatePropertyTax
