    PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS
    The use of the property as of January 1st determines which exemptions you may qualify for.  You may apply for exemptions between January 1st and April 30th.

    Exemptions that you may qualify for on a personal residence-
    Homestead:
    All homeowners: $15,000 reduction in the value of your property for School Taxes.
    Application for Homestead Exemptions

    Over 65 Exemptions:
    You will receive an additional $10,000 reduction in the value of your property for School Taxes.  Any taxing unit has the option to offer a $3,000 exemption, including a school district.  The  Marble Falls ISD may possibly have a $13,000 over-65 exception.

    In addition to the over-65 homestead exemption, you also qualify for a “tax ceiling” for your total school taxes.  The school taxes on your home cannot increase as long as you own and live in that home.

    Other taxing entities have a option to offer a “tax-ceiling”.  The Appraisal District can give you more information regarding this.   Improvements to your home, other than normal repairs and maintenance will cause your tax ceiling to go up.    If you purchase another home in Texas, you may possibly transfer the percentage of school taxes paid.  For example if your tax ceiling on your former home reduced your tax liability to 25% of the actual school taxes due, you would only pay 25% of the school taxes of your new home. You should request a certificate from the appraisal district for the former home to take to the appraisal district for your new home.

    Other Exemptions:
    Disability Homestead – $25,000 on School Taxes   Application for Disabled Veterans Exemption
    Disabled Veterans – Between $5,000 to $27,000 on School Taxes
    Other taxing entities may provide exemptions.

    The Appraisal District can provide additional information regarding these exemptions.
