In 2023, many property owners in Texas received their property tax assessments, and it's no secret that property taxes can be a significant financial burden. In fact, they often rank as one of the largest expenses, second only to employee salaries. It's imperative to explore ways to minimize property taxes to protect your profits, and our team is here to assist you in this endeavor.
Consider this recent example to understand the impact of a tax hike on your property's financials:
2022 Assessment: $8,900,000
2023 Assessment: $12,600,000
Property Tax Increase at a rate of 2.28%: $84,360 per year or $7,030 per month (a staggering 41.6% increase!)
For a 250-unit property, this means you need to raise rents or reduce expenses by $28 per unit per month just to offset the property tax increase. If you're facing such challenges, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We can connect you with experienced property tax consultants who specialize in the markets where your properties are located.
The rising assessments significantly impact your property's income potential. Our network of specialists in the West/Central TX secondary markets is ready to assist you in protesting property tax assessments and exploring cost-saving strategies.
