Time Running Out to Save on 2015 Property Tax

House with Blue DoorIn Texas, one of the expenses that come along with the pride of owning your condo, house or ranch is the accompanying property taxes. A way to reduce those property taxes is to make sure you have all of the exemptions you are entitled too.  To check go the appraisal district for the county where your homestead is located.  You can look up your home by name or address. 

You have less than 12 days to claim any exemption for 2015.  Check that you have it and if you do not submit your application now.

The general residential homestead exemption
Is the most common exemption and is provided by state law for owner-occupied residential properties. The exemption removes a portion of your value from taxation providing a lower tax amount for the homestead property. You can apply for the homestead exemption by visiting the appraisal district website for the county you live in. Here is a list of the appraisal districts in Central Texas. There are a number of other exemptions such as Over-65 Homestead and 100% Disabled Veterans.

You may file a late homestead exemption application if you file it no later than one year after the date the taxes become delinquent.

The last day to pay taxes without delinquency is Jan. 31. So if you were living in your condo, house or ranch January 1st, 2015 and you do not have the homestead exemption, submit your application now. You can complete the application in minutes.  Some appraisal districts even let you submit your application online.  To apply for the exemption is free.
