Taxes and the Homestead Exemption
The homestead exemption provision means that permanent
residents don't pay taxes on the first $25,000 of their home's appraised
value. You can reduce your ad valorem tax bill by seeking a homestead
exemption on the first $25,000 of your home's value.To file for
exemption, establish residency by Dec. 31 prior to the year you
will claim exemption, then file for exemption in January or February.
