*** A taxpayer is entitled to a Homestead exemption on their principle/primary residence.   Effective September 1, 2013 the law has changed and requires that you attach a copy of your driver’s license or state-issued personal identification certificate as documentation along with the Homestead Exemption Application.  The address listed on your driver’s license or state-issued personal identification certificate must correspond to the address of the property for which an exemption is claimed.  In certain cases, you may be exempt from these requirements or the chief appraiser may waive the requirement.  Please see the Homestead Exemption Application for further information.
