It’s that time of year again!  If you purchased a primary residence in 2017, make sure to file your homestead exemption with the county to save some money on your property taxes! You must submit this paperwork by April 30th. 

Your Homestead Exemption will be denied unless all of the required documents show the same homestead address. First, fill out the application specific to your county, then mail all of the documents to the county appraisal district. Williamson County even lets you file the paperwork online!
