We use sophisticated software, including Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, to construct a strong case to reduce your property value! Then, we attend the protest hearings to present the case on your behalf at the appraisal district offices.
You can save 8–10 hours of your time by using our services. Every property tax appeal requires hours of research of your home, your neighborhood, recent sales, and etc. This requires thorough understanding of the appraisal process and the usage of very specific formulas for adjustments. Lastly, you'll need to make a trip to the Appraisal District to meet with the appraisers and the ARB panel to present your case.
Save More Money
Property tax consultants have 80–90% protest success rate. Similarly, property tax agents achieve higher property value reductions. Property tax agents win more cases and save you more money on taxes!
Low Service Fee

Maksim has been helping me with the protests for the last couple of years. The interest and passion he brings to the table is genuine, and gives his best shot at helping us protest back to WCAD with factual data and comps that are true. He has been upfront when he feels that he can't help a case.
With his new website, TaxProtestMap, Maksim has upped his game. It's straightforward and simple. Who knew protesting for a property was just a few clicks. Wishing Maksim the best as he tries to help his customers!!
I've always disliked doing property tax protests. Not only because of the time it takes and how intimidating dealing with the county assessors is, but also because it's hard to track down data on what my house is actually worth. The past several years I've resigned myself to pay other firms a hefty fee to protest for me. The process is opaque and usually doesn't even work.
TaxProtestMap is very easy to use. The clean web process guided me through all the simple steps. The great part is it's much cheaper than other services which take much more of my tax savings!

What is the protest filing deadline?
The protest filing deadline in 2022 is May 16, or 30 days after the date on your Notice of Appraised Value, whichever is later.
I already filed my protest. Can you take over my case?
Yes; however, the outcome depends on exactly how the protest was filed, what evidence was provided to the appraisal district, and other factors. It is in your best interest to allow us to handle the entire protest process from start to finish.
If TaxProtestMap lowers my property taxes, will it lower the price I can sell my house for?
Reducing your appraised value will not affect your sale or list price! Appraisal districts use a mass appraisal system which does not consider the facts such as hardwood flooring vs carpet, remodeled kitchen vs outdated, high ceilings vs low, professionally landscaped yard vs no landscaping at all. All these details play a huge role in determining the sale price of a home.
Why is my property valued higher than my neighbor's?
Square footage, decks, patios, porches, age, quality of construction, and even the section within a neighborhood can make a huge difference in the appraised value. Appraisal districts use obscure math and formulas, which are not readily available, but TaxProtestMap has all the information required to make a strong case for a property value reduction.
When will I know the protest outcome?
Protest hearings typically run May through August and your hearing can happen at any time during this timeframe. The current year tax rates are set in August/September. You can expect to hear from us shortly after that with the protest results as well as the invoice for our services.
