Commissioners Court Approves Homestead Exemptions for Homeowners

Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan thanks Harris County Commissioners Court for approving and adopting the property tax homestead exemptions.

“Each year, Harris County approves and adopts the homestead and Over-65/Disabled property tax exemptions,” said Sullivan. “This significantly reduces the tax burden for homeowners who qualify for these exemptions.”

Harris County Commissioners Court approved the orders for exemption from ad valorem taxation for tax year 2016 for the County, Flood Control District and Harris Health System (formerly known as Harris County Hospital District), in the following amounts of the appraised value of residence homesteads:

Property owners are encouraged to contact the Harris County Appraisal District at www.hcad.org or call 713-957-7800 to apply for exemptions.

“Exemptions are the easiest way to reduce your tax bill. With tens of thousands of people moving to our region each year, I want to ensure they have the proper exemptions,” said Sullivan.
