Amount of most exemptions is decided by the tax entities
Property taxes are generally based on multiplying the assessed value times the tax rate. However, exemptions can reduce the assessed value below the market value. For example, the homestead exemption for HISD is $25,000 plus 20% of the assessed value. The homestead exemption for Harris County is 20% of the assessed value. If the homestead is capped because of large increases in market value, the Harris County homestead exemption is based on assessed value instead of market value.

“O’Connor & Associates is the leader when it comes to aggressive tax appeals in Texas. Last year, they were able to lower taxes on multiple properties with outstanding results. I strongly recommend the services of O’Connor & Associates, who consistently achieve superior results.”
“The hearing results thrilled me! I must convey my deep gratitude to your firm on the superb job you have done representing us!! I tried to do this protest a few years ago with a friend who is a realtor. We didn’t have the clout. You do, and you use it for the good, for the relief of the overburdened taxpayer. I applaud your work and I will pass the word on to family and friends.”
“I don’t know how you did it, but I am impressed. I signed up with you for the first time this year. I protested my own tax appraisal last year and although not satisfied, managed to get HCAD to reduce my appraisal by $26,600. This year, I thought whatever you could do would be gravy. Well, you got HCAD to reduce it by $40,400! I will gleefully pay your bill when I receive it. You are awesome! Thanks so much for your representation.”
