If you’re the proud owner of a new home, don’t forget one of the main perks (aside from having a house, of course): filing for Texas Homestead Exemption.

Filing for homestead exemption could reduce the amount of property taxes you will be required to pay. As long as you resided in your home on January 1st of this year, you can apply on or before April 30th. It’s a free service, just apply through your local appraisal district.

Contact the Appraisal District of the county where you live and request the necessary documents, or you can download the form directly from the website.
