2018 Texas Homestead Exemption
Tax season is in full effect and we hope you are taking advantage of all the exemptions possible. The homestead exemption can potentially lower the taxes owed on your property. Different tax entities have different exemptions so make sure to check with your local appraisal district.
4 STEPS TO APPLY FOR HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION
1. Download the application from your local appraisal districts website. Remember, you must have occupied the residence before January 1, 2018.
2. Complete the form and attach a copy of your driver’s license (The address on your driver’s license must match the address of the residence). Check with your local tax appraisal district office for more information and to ensure there are no further requirements.
|Tarrant County||Parker County||Johnson County|
3. Return the form to the appraisal district by the April 30, 2018 deadline.4. As long as the owners occupy the residence the homestead exemption will remain in place. If you no longer occupy the residence or sell it, you should request the exemption be removed. Failure to do so could result in the assessment of penalties as well as interest on the portion of taxes that should not have been exempt.
