Homestead Exemptions

It’s that time of year again!  If you have purchased a home in the past year, it is time to fill out the Homestead form and file between January 1, 2014 and April 30, 2014 to receive an exemption on your property taxes for as long as you own your property.

There is no fee to file your homestead exemption.  But, please beware that you might receive an official looking letter asking for $25+ to file this exemption for you.  This is not necessary.  In fact, the Bucher Group is providing you with the links to Travis, Williamson, Bastrop and Hays county websites for you below!

Travis County - http://www.traviscad.org

Williamson County - http://www.wcad.org

Hays County - http://www.hayscad.com

Bastrop County - Call 512-303-1930 ext. 22

In order to qualify for the Homestead Exemption in the state of Texas, you must own your home on January 1, 2014 and it must be your principle residence.

In addition, if you are older than 65 or a disabled veteran, you may also qualify for other exemptions.   Please go to http://www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo for more information and what exemptions you might be eligible for.

The Bucher Group would be honored to help you in any and all of your real estate needs.  Please feel free to contact us for more information at 512.794.6644.
