Property Tax Exemptions and Burnet and Llano County Tax Rates


The use of the property as of January 1, determines which exemptions you may qualify for.  You may apply for exemptions between January 1, and April 30.

      Application for Residence Homestead Exemption

Exemptions that you may qualify for on your personal residence:

Homestead 
All homeowners: $15,000 reduction in the value of your property for School Taxes,
        
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,  As of this writing the Marble Falls ISD had 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 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   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 this.   For additional information go to this State of Texas publication:   Taxpayer's Rights and Remedies and Responsibilities
