Over 65 Exemption
A Texas homeowner qualifies for this county appraisal district exemption if they are 65 years of age or older. This exemption is not automatic. The homeowner can not claim a disability exemption if they claim an over 65 exemption.

A homeowner may receive the Over 65 exemption immediately upon qualification of the exemption by filing an application with the county appraisal district office. The homeowner must apply before the first anniversary of their qualification date to receive the exemption in that year.

If they are the surviving spouse of someone who received the Over 65 exemption they can continue the exemption if they were 55 years old at the time of their spouse's death.

More details are available on the Over 65 Exemption form.
