North Texas Property Tax Services is the largest high-end residential property tax consulting firm in North Texas. We help property owners protest their appraised value, thus reducing the amount of property taxes they pay for the year.
NTPTS has represented over 2,500 homes valued at $1 million or more. We obtained over $100 million dollars in appraisal reductions for our clients in each of the last 6 years. The next most successful firm achieved only $35 million in residential reductions.
Our expertise and dedication is why over 93% of NTPTS clients continue after their first appeal with us.
We work with homeowners who have properties valued over $250,000, but we specialize in high-end residential properties. Over 25% of our client’s homes are valued over $1 million, our specialty.
In Dallas county alone, we represented 13% (over 1000) of the Dallas County homes valued over $1 million. The next largest firm represents less than 3%.

Our Ranking Analysis
We do not use any mass marketing. If you are a new client, or considering engaging us to assist in lowering your property taxes, you likely received a letter from us with a pre-analysis of your home, comparing your appraised value to similar homes in your neighborhood, and stating where your home “ranks” compared to similar homes in terms of appraised value per square foot.
Call us to discuss your individual ranking and situation, but in general here is how our Ranking Analysis works.
Ranking by Group
We conduct several ranking studies, grouping homes based on the neighborhood (the appraisal district assigns a Neighborhood Code to each neighborhood), or grouping homes based on the school district, or based on the “Area” of the county. As you would expect, where your home “ranks” compared to other homes will vary on the grouping.
Our analysis considers the value of the structure (the home), not the value of the land, which often varies greatly and can have an undue or skewing effect on the ranking per square foot of the home.
It is our experience that we have a better chance of achieving a reduction on a home whose value per square foot puts them higher in the ranking than a home that falls lower in the group ranking.
However, we protest our client’s homes regardless of where they fall in the ranking, and often achieve reductions.
Pre-Analysis vs. Final Presentation Analysis
Our ranking reports are identified as “pre-analysis” since they work with groupings of homes instead of a single specific home.
When we prepare a client’s actual case for presentation to the appraisal district, our focus and analysis techniques shift to a single home, comparing that specific home to individually identified comparable homes. We can focus on an individual home where the appraisal district must focus on the mass of homes as a group.
Work with Trusted Experts
Our experience is that your chance of success in achieving a reduction is based on many factors. Just because you rank high in the ranking comparisons does not by itself indicate you are due a reduction, a deeper level of analysis is required to make that case. And just because you rank low does not mean that additional analysis cannot identify a rationale for a reduction.
Each year stands on its own; the landscape and environment change each year and what happened last year is less important than just protesting. Our recommendation is that every owner should protest their appraised value every year.
