At NTPTS, we encourage all taxpayers to protest their assessed property value every year, regardless of what firm they use or if they opt to handle the appeal on their own.
The data has shown that every year for the past 18 years, the best decision is to partner with NTPTS for optimal results. While we cannot guarantee results and we do not win every appeal we take on, we can guarantee that your appeal will be intensely studied by a full time professional every year.
The detailed approach we take in analyzing the appraised valuation models used on your property is second to none. Learn more about continuous monitoring and why 93% of our clients remain with NTPTS after their first property tax appeal.
Why You Should File a Property Tax Protest Annually
Many of the details in the appeal process change every year. The staff at NTPTS is constantly monitoring the property tax process, appeal procedures, and changing legislation to ensure our clients receive the best possible representation.
Legal updates and changes in Appraisal Review Board procedures are often minor and not well publicized, but can have a drastic effect on how an appeal is processed or presented.
Property taxes are always one of the most contested points when the Texas Legislature meets every two years. Portions of the Property Tax Code are always changing, which can affect everything from how exemptions are calculated, hearing procedures, appeal procedures, and accepted valuation techniques.
The NTPTS staff is constantly monitoring these changes and implementing procedures in response to ensure our clients receive every benefit allowed by law. In contrast, most companies in our industry hire temporary employees to handle their caseloads during the appeal season. There is no comparison to representation by these part time appeal attendants to our full time professional consultants.
Appraisal techniques and technology used to value your property change on an annual basis for any given area. Knowing the difference in how the Appraisal District approaches each area on an annual basis can often be the difference in a successful appeal.
Again, with our full time staff of professionals, we are prepared and knowledgeable about any changes in technique, and can adapt our case evidence to handle the information. Most firms in our industry use large-scale algorithms to prepare the information for their appeals, and some even use overseas companies to prepare the information that will be presented to the Appraisal Review Board.
Our approach to your appeal is an intense study of your property and its unique characteristics that are used to calculate your value.

Ease for Taxpayers
Once you sign up with NTPTS, you do not have to worry about missing deadlines or making sure your property is being characterized correctly. We take care of it all for you!
Representation at No Risk

Individual Approach vs. Mass Reductions
At NTPTS, you will always receive the most detailed approach to your appeal. We do not settle appeals in mass or accept deals that trade one appeal for another.
Many property tax appeal firms in Texas handle their appeals based on volume. These firms will automatically accept any reduction offer given by the Appraisal District, often without doing any analysis on the assessed value.
Some firms’ contracts state that the client does not have a right to review the information prepared for the appeal. This is an extreme red flag and probably means that the company has not performed an analysis and is trying to settle all of their appeals at once.
NTPTS clients are always able to review our analysis on their property and discuss the strategy used in the property tax appeal process. It is your appeal, and you have every right to see all information regarding the protest!
Make Sure Your Home is Never Over-Appraised
Due to changes in legislation and appraisal techniques, it is important to monitor your home’s appraised value annually and file a protest. Over 93% of our clients are on a long-term, continuing basis, in which we automatically protect their appraised values every year.
NTPTS can assist with property tax protests and attend informal and formal hearings on your behalf. The experience and preparation allow for superior rebuttal arguments and the best results in our industry. In addition, our full-time consultants are available to advise clients on property tax matters, conduct property tax research, analyze property values, and more.
