- The first $25,000 of this exemption applies to all taxing authorities.
- The second $25,000 excludes school board taxes and applies to properties with assessed values greater than $50,000.
The Property Appraiser mails Homestead Exemption application forms and qualification guidelines to persons who bought homes during the current year.
Property owners who qualify for other exemptions, must complete the corresponding form and submit it to the Property Appraiser's Office.
