Travis County property owners have been encouraged to apply for homestead exemptions

The Travis Central Appraisal District said applying for homestead exemptions could save owners money on their property tax bills.

AUSTIN, Texas – The Travis Central Appraisal District (TCAD) is encouraging local property owners to start the new year by applying for homestead exemptions.

TCAD said applying for homestead exemptions could help homeowners save on their property tax bills.

“Even with real estate values ​​at record levels, the benefits of a homestead exemption have allowed many Travis County property owners to lower their property tax bills in 2022,” said Chief Appraiser Marya Crigler. “Claiming the exemptions you qualify for is the easiest way for a property owner to lower their property tax bill.”

TCAD said several types of homestead exemptions are available, including a general homestead exemption for residence and exemptions for those over 65, people and veterans with disabilities, and the surviving spouses of first responders and service members killed in the line of duty.

TCAD said that a property owner must own and occupy a property to be eligible for a homestead exemption. Property owners do not need to reapply for their exemptions once they have been granted unless there is a change to the title deed.

If you are a property owner and need help completing your Homestead Liberation Application before the May 1 deadline, you can call TCAD’s Homestead Liberation Hotline at 512-873-1560. The hotline is open Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. TCAD warns that there may be long phone line waits in January due to the Jan. 31 property tax payment deadline.

Exception requests can be submitted in person, by post or via the TCAD online portal. If you submit your application through the portal, you can check the status of your application and receive email notifications. Crigler also said property owners who apply for their exemptions online will see faster processing times.

You can view the current exemptions for your property, see a list of available homestead exemptions, and download or fill out exemption application forms TCAD website.
