Properties Damaged by Harvey may be eligible for Reappraisal
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS – Properties damaged by Harvey may be eligible for reappraisal for the 2018 tax cycle. The Texas Property Tax Code allows local governmental entities to authorize Appraisal Districts to reappraise property inside a declared disaster area. A reappraisal of property affected by the recent flooding will be conducted if requested by the local taxing entities.
“A major portion of this process involves assistance by the property owners,” said Township Chairman Gordy Bunch. “We remind Township residents who suffered storm damage to please submit evidence to expedite the potential future reappraisal.”
Evidence must be brought in to Montgomery Central Appraisal District and can include any of the following: Photos of Damage, Insurance Estimates, Contractor Estimates, Receipts for Repairs, FEMA Documents or any related repair costs due to disaster damage.
