A homestead exemption exempts a certain dollar amount or percentage of home value from property taxes, resulting in lower taxes. Homestead exemptions must be filed, they do NOT happen automatically when you buy your home.
File a Homestead Exemption with your county’s Central Appraisal District (CAD). Some CAD’s allow online filing, others require mailing in the application form. Keep a copy for your records.
