School District General Homestead Exemption Increased for 2022
On May 7, 2022, Texas voters approved a constitutional amendment to Section 1-b(c), Article VIII increasing the General Homestead exemption amount from $25,000 to $40,000. The increased exemption amount only applies to school districts.
If you are currently receiving the General Homestead exemption you do NOT need to reapply to receive the increased exemption amount for your school district. Our software vendor has updated our exemption administration tables with the increased amount, and our 2022 Certified Appraisal Roll, to be completed in July, will include the $40,000 exemption for your school district tax statement.
Exemption Increase Effective Date: January 1, 2022.
