2018 OVER 65 EXEMPTIONS REAFFIRM

Uvalde County Appraisal District has identified certain properties that are in need of record updates.

On Thursday, November 2nd, 2017 the Uvalde County Appraisal District mailed out Reaffirm letters for all accounts needing an updated Over 65 Exemption Application. Under Tax Code Section 11.13(c), Texas Law requires School District to offer an additional $10,000 residence homestead exemption to persons age 65 and older or disabled. Tax Code Section 11.13(b) requires school districts to offer a $25,000 exemption on residence homesteads. Pursuant to Section 11.43 of the Property Tax Code, a new application is required for the 2018 ad valorem tax year.

If you received one of these applications, please fill out, sign and return it as soon as possible. For your convenience we included a self-address stamped envelope to return your completed application. If we do not receive the application back, the over 65 exemption and homestead shall be removed from your account.
