New Classification Guide Video and New Laws Webinar

BigPic_GoldStarDear Chief Appraisers and Tax Assessor-Collectors:

Classification Guide
We are pleased to announce a new video on the Property Tax Assistance Division’s website, “2013 Texas Property Tax Assistance Property Classification Guide,” which provides an overview of revisions made to the guide. Significant changes were made to Category D, Category G and the totally exempt property category. In addition, how to categorize parent and adjacent accounts under common ownership is included. Continuing education credit is available for property tax professionals who watch the video and are registered with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).

New Laws Webinar
You have one more chance to fulfill the TDLR requirement for the 2011 state-required laws and rules update course. A webinar is scheduled on April 3, 2013. Please note that the 2011 course does not take the place of the state-required laws and rules update for the 2013 session.

This is a two-part-webinar. Please register for both parts on our website. To follow along during the webinar, please download the Texas Property Tax New Law Changes 2011.
