You think your Spring Texas home has a homestead exemption but you are not 100% sure. So how can you easily find out if you have a homestead exemption?
At the Harris County Appraisal District website of www.hcad.org you can look up your account and see which if any exemptions have been applied to your account. In the top right corner of www.hcad.org you can search for your account by account number, address or owner name.
After you have located your tax account, you can view your exemptions by looking under the heading of exemption type. Click on the picture for a larger view of what you are looking for.
If you discover that you don’t have a homestead exemption, you can discover how to apply for a homestead exemption. If you were eligible for a homestead exemption in prior years but did not file for it, you can get a refund. The Harris County Appraisal District will refund you the amount of the homestead exemption for the last year. But only for the last year and no more.
Filing for a homestead exemption is one of the easiest ways to save money on your Spring Texas real estate taxes.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
