How to File Your Homestead Exemption
How to file for Homestead Exemption in Local Texas Counties
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.

Ruby Miranda and her team are amazing. I started house seeking back in 2009. Of course I did not have credit. However the team advise on what I needed to do to get approved.

I am so glad we worked with The Queen Team during the purchase of our home. Monica was so patient and was very helpful on finding listings in the area of town we wanted to narrow our search to. She is also very funny and we felt very comfortable sharing with her our honest options of each house we visited. Once we found our home, the entire team worked with us with constant communication, which made the entire process very easy to understand and follow. Definitely will go back to them next time…
