Now is time for filing your homestead exemption in the country where the property is located.
Here’s how it works: The taxing authorities (school district and county) allow you to remove part of the taxable value of your home for tax purposes since you are using the property as your residence.
Copy of drivers license showing the address of the property and
Copy of car registration with the property address. In the absence of a vehicle, you can provide a utility bill with that address or complete a notarized affidavit
If your property is located in Harris county, please print out the Harris County Application for Residential Homestead Exemption form , fill it out and mail back to Harris County Appraisal District, P. O. Box 922012, Houston, Texas 77292-2012 along with the supporting documentation from above. If you have any questions about how to complete the form, you can email or call me.
