Linebarger Partner to Answer Taxpayer Questions During Free Seminar

 

Linebarger Partner Charles A. “Chip” Sutton will answer questions from property owners on delinquent property taxes and payment options during a free seminar on Oct. 19.

“Having a better understanding of the property tax process allows property owners to make better decisions for themselves and their families,” Sutton said. “It also benefits the county when property owners are making well-informed decisions. This seminar will give property owners a chance to gather all the important information they need.”

The Fort Bend County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office and the Fort Bend Central Appraisal District are holding the seminar that takes place on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to noon at George Memorial Library in Richmond, Texas. Read more about the seminar here.

During the seminar, the Chief Appraiser will discuss available exemptions and how property owners can apply for them, how the appraisal district determines property value, and how a taxpayer can protest the appraised value. Additionally, the County Tax Assessor-Collector will discuss the assessment phase, including the procedures required to adopt a tax rate and also the collection phase.

All property owners in Fort Bend County are welcome to attend the seminar and further their understanding of property taxes.
