Did you know that if you purchased a home in Texas in the year 2021 that you have until April 30th to file for what is called a residential homestead exemption?

Exemptions are a form of tax relief that can reduce the taxable value of your home. And if you’re like me, you do not want to miss out on any tax breaks you might be entitled to.

If you own and occupy your new home- it’s your homestead- you likely qualify for this exemption. 

To apply for an exemption you can get the forms from Central Appraisal Districts Websites  (see below) for your county. Don’t worry, I have included that links below for your convenience. Along with your application, you will need to submit a copy of your driver's license. Your driver’s license address must match the address that you are applying for an exemption for.

Dallas County

Denton County

Collin County

Tarrant County

If you have any questions about this exemption, give us a call. We are happy to help in any way we can!
