Are you ready to save on your property taxes?

Posted

Homestead exemptions remove part of your home’s value from taxation, so they lower your taxes. For example, your home is appraised at $100,000, and you qualify for a $25,000 exemption (this is the amount mandated for school districts), you will pay school taxes on the home as if it was worth only $75,000.

Sounds pretty amazing right? It used to be that we’d have to fill out a form, mail it in or even take it down to the Comptroller’s office and get it all taken care of; which you can still do! But, now with the beautiful thing of technology, there is an app for that! I know, pretty awesome right?

 

Below I have put together a step by step process of how to file with the app. But, if you don’t like phones, or aren’t a big fan of technology, reach out to me and I will personally walk you through how to fill out the paper version!

 

Step 1: Download the App from your respected App Store! Whether you have an Android or an iPhone, the app is on both making it easier for everyone to access it!

 

 

Step 2: Open the app and follow the instructions! It’s really that easy!

Step 3: It’s going to ask you for a copy of your Driver’s License, but all you need to do is take a picture and you are good to go!

 

 

Step 4: They’ll ask for your email address, but they won’t send you any crazy amount of emails! Just confirmations and a way they can possibly contact you.

 

 

Step 5: Accept the agreement!

 

 

Step 6: Sign! It doesn’t have to be pretty though!

 

 

Step 7: Submit! And just like that, you are done!

 

But, if you don’t like phones or just are not a big fan of technology in general, you can still fill out the paper version, I have attached a copy of the paper version to this email. If you need any help filling out the paper version, just reach out and I will walk you through it!

As always, if you need anything or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at all!
