Do I have to do anything to receive the increase to my homestead exemption?

City Council approved an increase to the residential homestead exemption from 10% to 12% for the 2019 tax year.  While the old exemption amount was shown on appraisal notices mailed out earlier this year, the higher amount will be applied automatically and will be reflected on your 2019 tax bill.  You do not have to do anything to receive the increased exemption, as long as you have a homestead exemption already on file with the Fort Bend Central Appraisal District.
