Optional Exemptions Granted

Optional Exemptions for Tax Year 2016

The amount of the Over 65 Exemption or the Disability Exemption is deducted from the appraised value certified by the Appraisal District. This is the taxable value. This taxable value is multiplied by the tax rate per $100 of value.

An individual can only be granted either the Over 65 or the Disability exemption, but not both in a case where that individual might be eligible.

The appraised value is multiplied by the homestead percentage granted. Then other exemptions are applied and this results in the taxable value. There is a minimum of $5,000 that can be granted as a residence homestead. A property may be granted a residence homestead and an Over 65 Exemption or a Disability Exemption and also a Disabled Veteran Exemption.

All taxing jurisdictions must grant the Disabled Veteran Exemption if the taxpayer so qualifies. The amount is determined by the degree of disability set by the Veterans Administration.

ANY and ALL exemptions granted MUST come from the Appraisal District.
