The Gift of Homestead Exemption


DECEMBER 31, 2019

If you are currently looking for a new home, you may not have considered the impact that closing before the year end can have.  The homestead exemption helps you save on taxes on your home. In addition, you may be eligible for other exemptions, such as age 65+. In order to benefit from the applicable tax exemptions on owner-occupied residential property, one must occupy that residence on January 1st.

Real estate taxes, exemptions (if any), and tax rates are based upon location and appraised value.  They are determined by the County Appraisal district.

There is still time for qualified buyers to purchase your new residence and received this substantial benefit!
