Documents & Forms

Homestead Exemption

Property owners applying for a residence homestead exemption or persons age 65 or older exemption should file this form and supporting documentation with the appraisal district in the county in which the property is located.

Homestead Application/Over 65 Exemption - [Residence Homestead Section 11.13]
To initiate the Homestead Exemption application process, access the Property Search feature on this page to locate your property. Once you've identified your property, navigate to the Property Services section and click on the "Apply for Homestead" button to complete the required form. If the "Apply for Homestead" button is not visible, you may already have an existing exemption on record. To confirm the status of your exemption or inquire about its filing, please contact the Deeds and Exemptions department at (915) 780-2136.

Starting in 2005, if your original residence homestead application or other written correspondence to the appraisal district included your date of birth, you will automatically be eligible for the age 65 or older exemption without the need for a separate application, provided you qualify for the general residence homestead exemption. There is no need to submit an additional application when you turn 65. Contact the appraisal district to verify or update the presence of your information in the appraisal district's records, please reach out to the Deeds and Exemptions department at (915) 780-2136.
