The most common of the exemptions is the Residence Homestead Tax Exemption. Lucky for us, it is also the easiest to apply for!

The only specific requirements to qualify for a residential homestead exemption in Texas are:
HOW MUCH IS THE DISCOUNT?

That is the 5 minute explanation and how to file on your East Texas Property Tax Exemption. I hope this general information helped give a quick explanation and to clarify some FAQ on Homestead Property Tax Exemptions. The laws are somewhat tedious and specific, and I am not a lawyer or CPA, so if you have specific legal or tax questions, always talk to your lawyer or CPA. Please note that this post is not a substitute for legal or tax advice and all regulations and laws are subject to changes, so always verify current statutes.
