The 1st of the year means taxes for everyone. Some look forward to the huge tax return that they will receive to use for a trip, a new car, savings, paying off bills, but in my case I hope you use for a new home purchase!


But some dread the 1st of the year because it means paying property tax, employment tax and in some cases income taxes. There are tons of ways to save on your tax bill and most require a CPA or tax attorney to show you how, but there is (1) easy way to save, Homestead your home. You have the option to homestead (1) of your properties to receive a tax break. Granted it is not huge, but every little bit helps. Also, if you are over the age of 65 you may file an over 65 exemption which will save you on your tax bill.


I have attached the link for Galveston County exemption form. Fill it out and sent it in. Pronto!
