Watchdog Nation called leader in Texas battle to fix a broken property tax system

Watchdog Dave Lieber, columnist for The Dallas Morning News, rolled out a major campaign in 2017 against the Texas property tax system.

The campaign was called “Everybody File a Tax Protest.” Purpose: to gum up the system with legally-allowed protests and show Texans the unfairness and subjectivity that plagues the state’s big tax collection system.

Early indications are the campaign was a big success. Protests numbers in big counties in the Dallas-Fort Worth region jumped considerably compared to the previous year.
