If you are contacted by a company offering to file your homestead exemption for a "one-time processing fee" DO NOT respond. There is NEVER a fee to file for any exemption. Contact our office to see if you qualify for a homestead exemption.
Homeowners who are age 65 or older or disabled may defer or postpone paying property taxes on their residence homestead as long as they own and live in it. A tax deferral only postpones the tax liability, it does not cancel it. Past taxes, penalty and interest become due 181 days after the subject property no longer qualifies as a residence homestead. To defer your tax payments, you must file a tax deferral affidavit with the Lubbock Central Appraisal District. For additional information contact us at (806)762-5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
