It’s Time to File a Homestead Exemption in Texas!

Did you purchase a home in 2015 that is your primary residence? If so, it’s time to file a homestead exemption in Texas. This important filing removes part of your home’s value from taxation.

There are two simple requirements:

  1. You must own your home on January 1st. (If you are over 65, and/or disabled, the January 1st ownership and residency are not required)
  2. You must use the home as your principal residence on January 1st.
