HOW TO FILE YOUR 2016 HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION IN HARRIS AND FORT BEND COUNTY

If you purchased a home in 2015 and occupied it as your primary residence by January 1, 2016, and you aren’t currently claiming homestead on a different property, you are eligible to lower your property taxes through filing for your homestead exemption in the country where the property is located.

NEW LAW

As of September of 2011, House Bill 252 imposed new requirements on property owners that want to claim exemptions. Due to the spread of duplicate or multiple filings of homestead exemptions on several properties by the same owner, this bill now requires the homeowner to provide the following along with their application:

Copy of drivers license showing the address of the property and
Copy of car registration with the property address. In the absence of a vehicle, you can provide a utility bill with that address or complete a notarized affidavit
