The most accurate measurement of your home will be the one done by the Appraiser when you purchased (or possibly refinanced) your home. Only a State Certified Appraiser has the license qualifications and training to properly measure your home. Many homes in this area have incorrect information in the tax records because tax assessors are not trained as State Certified appraisers. If your home was measured incorrectly by the assessor, bring a copy of your last appraisal to the county tax office and challenge it. They should correct it in their records going forward, and sometimes they agree to credit you back a little for the past taxes you paid in error. I am a Realtor and a State Certified Appraiser in Grand Prairie.
