Since the Texas Property Tax Code was adopted, Olson & Olson has represented the Harris County Appraisal District, the largest appraisal district in Texas and one of the largest in the United States. Olson & Olson, LLP handles more than 1,000 lawsuits a year on issues including:
Commercial and industrial valuation
Business inventory valuation
Equal and Uniform Challenges
The firm also represents central appraisal districts on matters including labor and personnel issues, civil rights litigation, licensing issues before the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, and the management and disclosure of public records. Olson & Olson’s ad valorem tax practice focuses on the representation of central appraisal districts; the firm does not collect delinquent ad valorem taxes.
We believe that Olson & Olson’s experience in local ad valorem property tax administration, and in the representation of local governmental entities, gives the firm a unique ability to represent the interests of central appraisal districts and the cities, counties, and other local governments they serve. Our experience in representing both central appraisal districts and the cities, counties, and other local governments they serve, gives us an understanding of both the revenue and expenditure sides of local government.
We are committed to helping foster the fair administration of the property tax system in Texas and defending local ad valorem tax rolls.
