How about ANOTHER tax saving idea to start 2016 ! Here you go!
Homestead that House
If you purchased a new home last year, it may be time to homestead. Texas in particular, allows most living in their primary residence on January 1 a Homestead exemption, giving them a nice property tax break !
If you are not sure if you have Homestead … just check your local appraisal district .. i.e. Dallas is www.dcad.org
Don’t forget !
Travels and Office Hours
Later this week I will be out-of-town, tethered electronically of course, AND the office will be closed on Monday, as well as all US banks, in honor of Martin Luther King Holiday!
Have a great day!
