This is the third step in the protest appeal process. Litigation and arbitration are options open to property owners whose appeal has advanced through the formal hearing stage, but has yet to reach the value supported by the evidence presented. 25% of all civil litigation at the court house is typically property value appeals.

If there is a strong case for a value reduction and the county appraisal district will not agree to it in the formal hearing, Bettencourt Tax Advisors can provide litigation management and support, or arbitration services on your behalf

To qualify for litigation or arbitration:

1. Your property must be settled in an Appraisal Review Board (ARB) or correction hearing to be eligible for either arbitration or litigation.
2. You must have a homestead exemption; or have a commercial or residential property valued below $5 million to qualify for an arbitration.
3. All other properties may qualify for litigation
