This exemption helps you save on taxes on your home. It removes part of the value of your property from taxation. This exemption is only for school tax purposes in Potter and Randall counties. To qualify you must meet these 3 qualifications:
- You must own your home on January 1.
- You must occupy and claim the home as your principal residence on January 1.
- You do not claim a residence homestead exemption in this state or outside of this state.
To qualify for the homestead exemption, you must complete an application for Residence Homestead Exemption. A copy of your driver’s licenses or state-issued personal identification certificate showing the same address as the property being claimed for the exemption must accompany the application. If your driver’s license reflects a post office box, you will need to provide a utility bill in your name reflecting the address of the property for which you are seeking the exemption.
You can file for a homestead exemption directly with our office. There is no fee to file a homestead, or any other exemption application. You may call our office at (806) 358-1601 if you would like an application mailed to you or if you have questions. You may also come by our office located at 5701 Hollywood Rd, Amarillo, TX to file an exemption application.
