Is there a maximum amount the Collin County appraisal district can raise my appraised value?

Property owners' taxes are based on the most current year's market value minus applicable exemptions. The appraised value of a residence homestead for a tax year is limited to the lesser of either its market value or the sum of the market value of any new improvements and 110% of the appraised value of the preceding year. The 10% increase is cumulative, that is 10% times the number of years since the property was last appraised. Therefore, if a homestead appraised value increases by 15% in two yers, all of the increase can be added if the homestead was not appraised in the previous year.

A 10% limitation takes effect for a residence homestead on January 1 of the tax year following the first tax year the owner qualifies the property for the residence homestead exemption. The 10% limitaiton ends on January 1 of the first tax year that neither the owner nor the owner's spouse or surviving spouse qualifies for the homestead exemptions.
