The Chambers County Appraisal District will mail property value notices to residential and commercial property owners at the end of March.
Most of the residential properties, except those with Tropical Storm Imelda damages reported, are increasing in value.
Chambers County residential and commercial markets continue to grow and remain strong. The Appraisal District is required by law to appraise all property at 100 percent of market value as of Jan. 1.
While the highest volume of sales continues to be on the west side of the county, county-wide sales prices continue to move upward from prior years despite Hurricane Harvey and Tropical Storm Imelda.
Residential property owners with Homestead Exemptions in place will be limited to a total taxable increase of 10 percent for tax year 2020 unless new improvements were added. Any remaining percentage increase will be seen in tax year 2021.
Owners with the Over-65/Disabled Homestead Exemptions in place are reminded taxes are paid according to the tax ceiling set in the year the exemption was granted. The ceiling amount only changes when new improvements are added to the property.
Specific information regarding properties and electronic filing of protest are available at www.chamberscad.org Only properties with a Residential Homestead Exemption are eligible for electronic protest filing.
