Asked by Gracie, Kingsville, TX • Mon Dec 29, 2008
There are some very sneaky people working for my local appraisal district. This year I received a notice adjusting the tax assessment of my home. It went up. My husband and I went by there. They said they had made an error the past 10 years, but that my fireplace was never coded as taxable. The appraiser said it was considered an amenity, just like a swimming pool. Is this true? She also asked if I would call her and let her know if my neighbors had a fireplace. I told her NO, that is your job! Well, I asked some of my neighbors who do have a fireplace if they were being taxed. All said NO. Is there something I can do to have this removed or try another avenue to reduce my taxes? I have the homestead and the disability exemption.
