The City of Austin is going to court. The mayor and mayor pro-tem made that announcement Monday as they try to balance tax appraisals across Austin. As our City Reporter Jeff Stensland explains, a win in court could save you money.
During construction, Circuit of The Americas claimed it was building a $300 million racetrack.
After it received its first tax appraisal, the track claimed it's only worth a third that amount..... A study by the City of Austin found icons like the Driskill Hotel were appraised at about half their market value.
Travis County's Chief Appraiser says that's because she has no access to sales data, unless she pays for it.
