SAN ANTONIO – The City of San Antonio, Neighborhood and Housing Services, is hosting workshops to help homeowners learn about lowering property taxes.

Free workshops will be held from Feb. through May 8 at various locations across the city.

The next free workshop will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 20, at Mission Branch Library, 3134 Roosevelt Ave.

Those looking to apply for a property tax exemption can get one-on-one assistance from legal experts at the events, a news release said.

At the workshop, there will be discussions concerning tips on preparing for an appeal with the Bexar County Appraisal District before the May 15 appeal deadline.

Those attending should plan to bring a driver’s license or state-issued ID.

If you inherited your home from a family member who has died and their name is still on the property records, you will need a copy of the prior owner’s death certificate, the property’s most recent utility bill, and, if possible a citation of any court record relating to your ownership of the property, ac news release said.
