Effective September 1, 2011, in order to qualify for a Texas residential homestead exemption you must provide a copy of your Texas Driver License or Texas State ID Card to the Appraisal District when submitting your application. Also, the address shown on your driver license / state ID card MUST match the physical address of the residence for which you are applying for homestead exemption on. If you already have a Texas Driver License you can change your address online by going to the Texas DPS website (www.txdps.state.tx.us) or in person at one of the Texas DPS locations. To obtain a new Texas Driver License you will have to go in person to one of the Texas DPS Locations. For your convenience below is a list of local Texas DPS locations in Collin County or you may call their main customer service center.
Homeowners automatically receive the Texas residential homestead exemption form from the Appraisal District. However, you are encouraged to contact the appropriate Appraisal District for information or to request an exemption form. Deadline for filing is April 30.
Tax exemptions are determined by the status of the occupant on January 1st of each tax year. Upon the purchase of a new home, you must contact the Appraisal District of the County in which you reside and request that they mail you the necessary forms for “Declaring Your Homestead”.
