How to Homestead in Texas *

Homestead exemptions remove part of your Fair Oaks Ranch home’s value from taxation. If you want to receive a homestead exemption for the taxes on your Boerne area home, the home must first qualify as a residence homestead on January 1 of the year in which you are applying.

There are a couple of requirements:

  1. You must own your home on January 1. (If you are over 65,and/or disabled the January 1 ownership and residency are not required.)
  2. You must use the home as your principal residence on January 1.

A state law that took effect on September 1, 2011 has changed proof of residency requirements for homeowners applying for the property tax homestead exemption.
