Homeowners Beware

Homestead exemptions are free.  There is no charge to file, receive or maintain a homestead exemption.  In fact, you can apply for a homestead exemption quickly and easily with the HCAD app for Apple and Android phones. 

HCAD has become aware that homeowners are receiving official-looking letters that claim their homestead exemption has expired and that property taxes will be raised unless they pay a fee to the appraisal district to have the homestead reinstated.  This is a scam.

HCAD will never charge you to file or maintain your homestead exemption.  You can easily check your account online at any time to verify the homestead exemption is in place – your account will either say “Residential Homestead” or “Multiple” if you have more than one exemption.  If you have a question, please email the appraisal district at or call our information center at 713-957-7800.


Installment Payment Plan For Disaster Victims

In accordance with Section 31.032 of the Property Tax Code, taxpayers who sustained property damage as a result of a declared natural disaster may be eligible to split their property tax payments into 4 equal interest-free installments, to be paid in full by July 31st.


This only applies to taxes imposed between the date of the disaster and exactly one year after that date for tangible personal property that is owned or leased by a business entity or real property that:

  1. is the residence homestead of the owner or consists of property that is used for residential purposes and that has fewer than five living units; or
  2. owned or leased by a business entity that had not more than the amount calculated as provided by Subsection (h) in gross receipts in the entity's most recent federal tax year or state franchise tax annual period, according to the applicable federal income tax return or state franchise tax report of the entity; 
    Note: The gross receipts threshold used in determining eligibility is $5,704,890.
  3. is located in a declared disaster area; and
  4. has been damaged as a direct result of the disaster.


By January 31st, you must provide:

  1. Payment in the amount of at least one-fourth (25%) of the total amount of taxes due.
  2. Proof of the property damage in the form of FEMA or insurance claims.

Note: You will be notified ONLY if the request is not approved.


  1. The remaining taxes, after the first installment, may be paid without penalty or interest as follows:
    1. The second installment must be paid by March 31, 2018.
    2. The third installment must be paid by May 31, 2018.
    3. The fourth installment must be paid by July 31, 2018.
  2. If you pay more than the amount due for an installment, then the excess will be credited to the next installment.
  3. If payment is not made before the deadline (delinquency date), the unpaid amount of the specific installment payment due is delinquent and incurs a penalty of 6% and 1% interest as provided by Section 33.01(c) of the Property Tax Code.
