Tax Protest Companies - with you forever

Now that the annual property tax protest time is over, like most folks, we'll forget about it until the next increase.

But something to make note of for the future: If you use one of those companies to represent you in your protest (you know the ones that give you back a percentage of what they might save you), then you are still bound to them. They will remain your representative of record with the county appraisal district unless you request they be removed from your account.
So why should you care? Because if you protest your taxes in the future and you win a reduction in your property taxes, they are still entitled to a percentage of that savings.
Contact your tax appraisal district if you want the company removed as your representative. It's quick and easy (unlike actually protesting your taxes). [where: 75230]
