Taxpayer ALERT regarding applications for Homestead Exemptions

The Tarrant Appraisal District is regularly contacted by homeowners who have unnecessarily paid money to solicitors who, for a fee, offer to file homestead exemption forms in Tarrant County.

We have found that the homeowners are being misled by letters or door to door solicitation from individuals or businesses that offer to help them apply for exemptions by signing an agreement giving these individuals or businesses half the recovered money.  The individual or businesses also require the homeowner to sign a form stating they are requesting to have their mailing address changed to the solicitor’s business address insuring they receive half the property owners refund if one is due.  Homeowners that change their mailing address will no longer receive tax statements, Notice of Appraised Value or any other correspondence mailed from the Tarrant Appraisal District, the Appraisal Review Board or the Tarrant County Tax Assessor Collectors office.

The Tarrant Appraisal District annually mails out applications for homestead exemptions in early January and there is no fee for filing an application.

If you have any questions, you may contact the Tarrant Appraisal District-Exemptions Division at (817) 284-4063, Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
