Well it’s January 1st and as I promised, here’s your reminder to file your homestead tax exemption for 2013. If you bought a home in 2012 or have never filed for a homestead tax exemption in Texas, now is the time to get it done! Remember, you must live in and occupy the home on January 1st, 2013 (so if you don’t close on your home until January 2, 2013, you’ll have to wait until Janury 2014!), but if you meet that requirement, it’s time to get your paperwork in order and sent into your local appraisal district. Here’s the original post, “Don’t forget your Homestead Tax Exemption!,” to learn all about the homestead tax exemption and to download the form necessary to file.
