GARY ELKINS SUPPORTS LOWERING THE HOMEOWNER PROPERTY TAX APPRAISAL CAP FROM 10% TO 5%:

Over the summer, Gary was appointed to the Select Committee on Property Tax Relief and Appraisal Reform. During that time he traveled the district and state listening to people's personal stories of property tax appraisal abuse on their homes. During the next legislative session, Gary Elkins will cosponsor legislation promoted by Harris County Tax Assessor Paul Bettencourt to lower the homeowner property tax appraisal cap from 10% to 5%. By limiting runaway appraisals, Texas families will enjoy lower property taxes and seniors will not be forced from their homes.
