You are eligible for a homestead exemption if you (1) own your home (partial ownership counts), (2) the home is your principal residence, and (3) you have a Texas driver's license or Texas-issued personal identification certificate (your I.D. card address must match your principal residence address).
To qualify for the general residence homestead exemption an individual must have an ownership interest in the property and use the property as the individual's principal residence. An applicant is required to state that he or she does not claim an exemption on another residence homestead in or outside of Texas.
In Texas, the residential homestead exemption entitles the homeowner to a $25,000 reduction in value for school tax purposes. Counties, cities, and special taxing districts may offer homestead exemptions up to 20% of the total value. Most counties in North Texas do offer this 20% reduction.
Property Tax and Appraisals The Texas Tax Code, Section 33.06, allows taxpayers 65 years of age or older to defer their property taxes until their estates are settled after death.
A homestead is defined in Texas as the place of residence for a family or individual and is secure from forced sale by general creditors. The Texas Constitution guarantees the only way a person can lose his or her homestead rights is by death abandonment sale of property or foreclosure of a lien against the homestead.

Do I apply for a homestead exemption annually? Only a one-time application is required, unless by written notice, the Chief Appraiser requests the property owner to file a new application. However, a new application is required when a property owner's residence homestead is changed.
