What is Homestead Exemption?
Homestead Exemption removes part of your home’s value from taxation, lowering your taxes. For instance, if your home is appraised at $200,000 and you qualify for a $40,000 exemption, you would pay taxes as if your home was only worth $160,000.
When to apply for it?
Regular Residential Homestead Exemption applications should be filed after January 1 and before April 30 after the year you purchased.
