To apply, you must own and occupy your home as your principal residence as of January 1 of the year for which you’re filing the exemption. For more information, check out the FAQ’s on the Texas Comptroller’s website, and don't wait, as the filing deadline is April 30.
You should receive a preliminary assessment for your home in May or June. If you need help protesting your assessed tax value, contact us. We can help you prepare by providing a list of recent homes sales in your neighborhood.
