How to file your Homestead Exemption in DFW

Dallas County, Collin County, Tarrant County, and Denton County

 

If you purchased a home as your primary residence in 2017, then you have between

January 1st and April 30th to file your residential homestead exemption. This

exemption essentially removes part of your home’s value from taxation and lowers

the amount in taxes you pay. It saves you money, so take a few minutes to file!

 

A Texas Driver’s License or ID card is required, and the address on your

identification must match the property for which you are filing the exemption. You

can find the list of DPS offices by clicking the link below if you need to update your

address.

For some counties, a copy of your vehicle registration receipt or a utility bill will also

be required.

 

Happy Filing!!!
