April’s General Membership Meeting promises to be timely if not exciting. For those that have been dreading opening your notices of appraisal from the Harris County Appraisal District, your Civic Club has a Property Tax Workshop planned for our next Civic Club general meeting on Tuesday, April
18. The Harris County Appraisal District and Harris County’s Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office will be demystifying the tax protest process at this upcoming meeting and help educate our neighborhood about property taxes.
Specifically, this workshop will focus on helping taxpayers lower their tax burden, through protesting their values and applying for exemptions. The Property Tax Workshop will cover how taxes are calculated, types of exemptions available, how to protest your value and payment plans for delinquent taxes.
Our Civic Club will be co- hosting this event with East Lawndale Civic Club. This Property
Tax Workshop is open to any Harris County homeowner who is interested in attending, so
you do not have to live in Idylwood to attend this event. Feel free to invite others you know
who might be interested in learning more about property taxes.
