- The television winner is Jason Wheeler, anchor/reporter, WFAA-TV for Is It Worth It: Property Values & Taxes. Many people don’t understand how taxes go up even when the tax rate stays unchanged. Even those who do understand wonder whether it’s worth it to challenge their tax liability. WFAA set out to explain the process plainly, give property owners tools to protest extraordinary valuation increases, and tell them how they can also get involved in changing the system responsible for their skyrocketing tax bills.
