Make sure you apply for a homestead exemption on your home you purchased from Advantage Realtor® Group in 2013.
A homestead exemption is a property tax relief, that is, the exemption provides a lower tax amount on the property. There are various types of exemptions, so select the one that best suits you.
To qualify for a homestead exemption:
• You must own the house prior to January 1st, and it must be your primary residence.
•You must have a valid driver’s license with the address of the property for which you are requesting the exemption.
• You must complete the homestead exemption application form found at http://www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/taxforms/50-114.pdf
• You must apply at the Wichita Falls Appraisal District between January 1st and April 30th of the applicable tax year.
Remember, the homestead exemption is NOT AUTOMATIC; you need to qualify and apply to receive it.
