If you bought a home in Spring Texas in 2010, you have until April 30th to file for a residential homestead exemption. The homestead exemption will reduce the tax assessed value of your house which saves you money on your Spring Texas real estate taxes.
There are additional exemptions available which may reduce your real estate taxes even further including exemptions for 65 and over, disability, 100% veterans and a surviving spouse.
The main things to remember are you have to file and you have to file for the exemption between January 1st and April 30th. You signed a lot of papers when you closed on your house but your homestead exemption was not one of them.
Once you file for and receive a homestead exemption, you will continue to receive it. You don’t have to refile for it each year. This is good news because we push enough paper and have too many things to remember to do.

My experience couldn’t have been smoother at that time so when it was time to move I naturally called Jill. Again she is so professional and easy to talk to the process was different but she makes it painless and goes above and beyond to get your house sold and to get you in your next home. Seamless. Awesome job Jill!!! read less
