Does anyone know how much value Travis county places on Canyon view? I just found out that a home with a gorgeous view and exact same floor plan (and larger land area than mine) had higher taxes than mine! Tomorrow is my day to protest my taxes. Any help appreciated!

I'm confused, the other home has more land, that probably explains the higher taxes as both the land and the improvements (house) are appraised separately.

A canyon view is going to be area specific as to what the area demands. Nicer, more expensive areas usually charge more for the views than lower price areas.

Don't you want that house that has more land and views to be in a higher tax base than you? You make it sound like it's a bad thing?

Yeah, a little confused here. You're not thinking of protesting to get a higher valuation, are you?

seems like they mistyped. To answer the alternate question, my experience has been they dont really take that into account. Even larger land they dont really take into account all the time unless it is acreage vs a subdivision lot. All the lots in our neighborhood are valued at exactly the same value. Some are twice as large, some have views etc. There is a scale for the quality of the finish out on the house.
