“Texans are being crushed by property taxes,” Abbot says in urging relief

untitledTexas property owners: Gov. Greg Abbott has heard your concerns and agrees you need a break. Declaring that “Texans are being crushed by property taxes,” Abbott called on state lawmakers Tuesday to develop a plan to bring them relief.

“Their property tax bills often increase far faster than household income,” Abbott told a joint meeting of House and Senate members in his State of the State address. “No government should be able to tax people out of their homes,” he said. “Texans should not stand for it. We must remember: property owners are not renting their land from the city.”

That’s why Abbott called on lawmakers to develop property tax reform that includes preventing cities from raising property taxes without voter approval, which is similar to a provision in the already introduced Senate Bill 2. State Sen. Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, filed another plan this week to help with the effort.

Her proposal, Senate Bill 669, would help reform the property tax appraisal process by boosting education requirements for appraisers and setting term limits for those who serve on Appraisal Review Boards. “This legislation will strengthen the rights of taxpayers and make the appraisal process fair, accountable and more transparent,” said Nelson, whose district includes portions of Tarrant County.
