If you purchased a home in 2017, its time to get your application for homestead exmption filed with your county's central appraisal district. The homestead exemption saves you money on property taxes fo your principal residence, so dont forget or delay. The deadline for filing is April 30th, but you will want to submit well in advance of the deadline to avoid potential issues. 

Along with your exemption application, you will need to submit a copy of your drivers license or state-issued identification. The address on your drivers license or ID must correspond to the address of the property for which you are claiming an exemption.
