Filing for a litigation or arbitration hearing can be your third and final step in the protest appeal process in Texas. If there is a strong case for a value reduction and the Appraisal Review Board (ARB) did 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 property tax 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 file within 60 days of receipt of your ARB Order of Protest.
  3. You must have a homestead exemption; or have a commercial or residential property valued below $5 million to qualify for an arbitration.
  4. All other properties may qualify for litigation.
