Property Taxes and how they affect your mortgage.

Harris County Appraisal District has started to mail out Notice of Appraisal Value. So if you are currently a homeowner in Harris County, and are paying a mortgage, this could affect you. Most mortgage payments include your mortgage insurance and property taxes, so if the taxes go up the mortgage will go up as well. Compare the appraised amount from this year to last year’s amount and see if it has increased. You could be looking at a higher mortgage payment if you don’t protest it. The deadline to file your protest with the Harris County Appraisal District is May 15, 2018. There is an online form, and you’ll get a hearing date. The burden of proof falls upon the homeowner. So if you have any questions about the process feel free to contact me.
