City of Greenville now offers 10% Homestead Exemption
Beginning with the 2022 tax year, qualified homeowners in the City of Greenville can receive a homestead exemption on their primary residence. The city has approved a local option homestead exemption of 10% of the homesite value of the property.
Homeowners who already qualify for the school district homestead exemption do not need to file a new application for the city exemption. The appraisal district will apply the 10% exemption to the city taxes automatically for those already qualified.
New homeowners must make a one-time application to receive the exemption. There is no fee for filing the application. The application form can be found here: https://hunt-cad.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Homestead-Application-50-114-1-20.pdf
Information regarding the newly adopted City of Greenville Over-65 Tax Limitation:
The City of Greenville now offers a tax limitation/ceiling for homeowners age 65 or older on their residential homestead property. This benefit puts a ceiling on the dollar amount of property taxes you pay each year to the City of Greenville. This does not freeze the assessed value or the tax rate. If the city taxes decrease, the amount you owe can still decrease.
Homeowners who already qualify for and are receiving the over 65 exemption from the Greenville ISD do NOT need to take any action or complete a new application. If you are age 65 or over and are not currently receiving the over 65 exemption from the Greenville ISD, you MUST file an application with the Hunt CAD. An application can be found here: https://hunt-cad.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Homestead-Application-50-114-1-20.pdf
There is no charge for filing the application.
If you are unsure if you currently have the over 65, please call the Hunt CAD at 903-454-3510. We are prohibited by law from posting this confidential information on our website.
