SB 1406 (Perry) allows the property appraiser to contract for services to examine or audit homestead tax exemptions. A contractor’s compensation must consist solely of a portion, not to exceed 33 percent, of the back taxes, penalties, and interest imposed and collected on the assessments resulting from the contractor’s examination or audit and the removal of homestead exemptions from previous assessment rolls or tax rolls.
