Just got my notice from El Paso, Texas Central Appraisal District, did you get yours

I got my notice in the mail and the value only went up a few dollars. Great!!  

My assistant got hers and her value is easily $30,000 more than anyone could sell it for. We must protest.

  An acquaintance got theirs and it is easily $50,000 less than it would sell for. They smiled and left the conversation.

I hear from others theirs went up measurably. CAD (Central Appraisal District) advises they only upped the values about 2% overall.  

My thoughts you ask?  Property Values have decreased more than 2%. Taxpayers have a very limited window to request a protest.  Must be filed by June 1 or 30 days from the receipt of the notice. Question we should all ask, can I sell my house for what CAD has it valued at? 

Not sure, call your favorite REALTOR and ask for a CMA.   Check out www,PropertyTaxesInElPaso.com

I think there are a lot of homeowners around the country who should be protesting their tax assessments.

I went through this before.  The county fights these tooth and nail.  I fought my condo about 15 years ago and was told not to tell anyone else or they would not cut my tax rate.  Of course I told the whole association.
