SAN ANTONIO – Tuesday is the deadline to protest your property tax bill.
"There are two things you can do when you get your notice in April or May," says Mary Doggett with Propel Financial Services. "You want to look to see that you've gotten all the exemptions you're entitled to, and you want to make sure your valuation is accurate."
If your property tax bill has increased this year, being proactive is your best bet to reducing your cost.
"It's definitely worth it to fight," says Doggett. "If you don't protest, they're going to go ahead and tax you on the full increase."
If you do not protest by the May 31 deadline, you lose the right to protest.
