JCLF at the Supreme Court of Texas

My law firm has represented Texas saltwater disposal companies who are experiencing illegal property taxation.  Essentially, certain appraisal districts in Texas have taxed the companies' land and then taxed them again based on the income they make from their "right to use" that same land.  The Texas Supreme Court agreed to hear this important case from Parker County (one of the small handful of cases they hear each year) and the oral argument was held on February 28, 2018.  A video of the oral argument can be found here.  I believe this case has significant implications for all businesses in Texas, who could be subject to the same scheme of being taxed on their properties, and then again on their "right to use" their properties.  (A big shout out to my mom letting me use her house and real estate business as an example in the argument!)
