If you lived in your house as of January 1st and count it as your primary residence, you may qualify for a homestead exemption per Texas Property Tax Code 11.13. A homestead exemption entitles you to a $25,000 exemption from the appraised value of your home property toward school taxes. This adds up to a significant tax savings, so talk to our staff regarding eligibility requirements.
Additional exemptions are available for those 65 years if age or older, disabled, or disabled veterans. Details can be found in the Texas Property Tax Code or by calling us at 325-365-3583.
