Annual Mailing of Applications, Exemptions, Renditions & Ag/Timber Forms
Gregg County Appraisal District sends a variety of applications to property owners. Homestead applications are mailed to owners of properties that transferred ownership in 2017 where the property was receiving the homestead exemption. Owners are encouraged to complete and return the homestead application before April 30, 2018. The property must be the principle residence of the new owner as of January 1, 2018.
Applications for 1-d-1 Open Space Agricultural Use/Timberland Appraisal will also be mailed out at this time. A new owner must apply and their agricultural endeavor must qualify in order for the agricultural special appraisal to continue. Owners have until April 30, 2018 to complete and return the application.
Business Personal Property Renditions will be mailed to business owners to complete and return. Per Section 22.01 of the property tax code, owners are required to render their tangible business personal property used for the production of income. Failure to render timely results in a nondiscretionary penalty imposed on the tax. The deadline to file is April 1, 2018.
Owners are encouraged to not delay in submitting any of the forms mentioned above. Applications and/or renditions are mailed to the most recent address filed with the appraisal district. Property owners should make certain the appraisal district has the correct mailing address on file.
