Tax Assessment

Tax Assessment

Why do we handle Tax Appraisal Contests?

Our firm historically only handled high value cases, such as refinery explosions, asbestos disease, pharmaceutical industry blunders, airplane crashes, etc.

Then, a few years ago my office building (downtown Beaumont) was assessed for FOUR TIMES MORE than the year before. I told them it was a mistake and was told that they had changed their valuation methodology to arrive at the new number.

Person on the computer doing Tax Assessments.I talked to other business owners and found that was a common, albeit flawed, process. We appealed and then sued and took depositions of the leadership and management of the appraisal district and found that they were just making up these new valuations.

Based on our deep dive into their operations, we were able to roll our valuation back to a number that was substantially below where it was before. Armed with this information, we are reaching out to the business community and helping dozens of other commercial property owners each year now.

How do we do take on the State in a tax appeal and make it work for you?

We handle all litigation matters on a WIN-WIN basis. If you win, our law firm wins. If you lose, we lose. No payment of legal fees or court costs are due. This is called “contingency contract” work in the legal arena.

Tax Appraisal Districts know legal services are VERY expensive, and that it is usually less expensive to pay the extra tax burden than it is to hire a law firm to challenge the appraisals and chance going to court.

What we do at BCA is form a partnership with our client. We represent you, and if we win your case and save you money, you agree to split the savings with us, and ONLY the savings.

In other words, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE. You don’t appeal, you pay the tax. You let us challenge the appraisal, and if we win, you have saved significant tax obligations.

MOREOVER, the reduced appraisal we obtain will now form the BASE for your appraisal next year. What that means is by reducing your base tax valuation THIS YEAR, it will carry over on the appraisal levels next year, and the next and the next. You save tons of money down the road, likely without having to appeal again.

What is our “track record” with Tax Assessment?

We win almost every case we accept. We don’t waste your time with a free consultation. If you have a good case, we will accept it and immediately get after the appraisal district. We won’t lead you on or ask for any money.

We have a great deal of experience with how the State of Texas, the Comptroller’s office, and local County Tax Appraisal Districts analyze and assess property.

They do this often without consideration to numerous “discount factors” that can come into play or other factors that can reduce the appraisal valuations.
