Common Brazoria County Property Tax Exemptions
Although the majority of Brazoria County’s homeowners must pay their property tax bills in full, you should check with the local authorities to determine whether you might be able to claim one or more property tax exemptions. Homeowners who may qualify include:
With well over 300,000 residents, Brazoria County maintains an impressive tax collection apparatus. As in most Texas counties, local property taxes are levied and collected by a “chief appraiser” who oversees the Brazoria County Assessor’s Office. In turn, the chief appraiser is appointed and supervised by the county’s appraisal district. Accordingly, his or her actions are subject to adjustment by the district’s board of directors. Every individual who pays property taxes in Brazoria County is permitted to challenge the assessments of the chief appraiser through a reassessment request or a formal hearing before the appraisal district’s board. Those who wish to appoint a qualified representative to assist them in this endeavor are free to do so. You can find more information about protesting a property tax assessment and appointing a representative on other pages within our site.
