House Bill 394 – Remove the Over 65 exemption from the Online Property Search

NEW GUIDELINES FOR DISPLAYING TAXPAYER INFORMATION ON YOUR WEBSITE

House Bill 394 was signed by the governor in June, therefore, starting September 1, 2015 tax appraisal records online can no longer reflect the age of the taxpayer in any way.

No worries…if you are a BIS client we’ve got you covered. In order to comply we are currently working to remove the Over 65 exemption from the Online Property Search and we’ll have it in place before September 1st.

The City of Brady in McCulloch County, Texas recently contracted with BIS Consultants for GIS Support and Services, as well as the build and hosting of an online interactive web map.  This project is being done in conjunction with multiple city departments and the McCulloch County Appraisal District.  It is a perfect example of interagency collaboration resulting in the most prudent use of public funds by way of a pooled resource model.  We look forward to partnering with the City of Brady on this endeavor.

Protest Time Is Around The Corner

It’s the start of the busiest time of year for most appraisal districts…protest time. At BIS Consulting we want to help make sure that you are prepared and have everything ready so you are able to smoothly get through this crazy time of year.

How does BIS help Appraisal Districts remove some of the headache of Protest season?

We’ve created Online Protest Software that is easy for the taxpayer and district but is packed with helpful features. BIS works with you and your printer to create Pins for e-protest accounts. In addition to this if you are an IT client our team will contact you and make sure your projector, computer and audio recording equipment is ready for protest season.

If you are currently an e-protest client you will be receiving an email with some very important information.

If you aren’t an e-protest client yet, click here to learn more.  Or better yet contact one of our current e-protest clients and ask them about it.
