Did You Know?
Attention all vets with a VA disability rating of at least 10 percent. Did you know that the State of Texas will grant you, through your local taxing authority, an additional exemption on your property taxes? The exemption amount is determined by your disability rating. For example, a veteran receiving a 71% or more rating will be granted an exemption of the first $12,000 of appraised value. This benefit must be applied for between 1 January and 30 April to be applied to your next tax bill.
