Homestead Exemption Increase on November Ballot

This November, Texas voters will have the opportunity to vote on Texas Proposition 4, the Property Tax Changes and State Education Funding Amendment.

This proposition amends the state constitution to increase the homestead exemption for school districts from $40,000 to $100,000. It also limits market value increases on non-homesteaded real property and creates three elected positions to an appraisal district’s board of directors if the county has a population of 75,000 or more.
