Received your 2018 Notice of Appraised Value from the Tarrant Appraisal District recently? Now is the time to ensure you are receiving all the property tax exemptions you are eligible for within the City of Arlington.

The Arlington City Council has authorized a variety of residential property tax exemptions, which include a 20 percent homestead exemption, a senior tax freeze, and an over 65/disabled exemption of $60,000. Arlington also offers an exemption to veterans or surviving spouses of veterans that ranges from $5,000 to $12,000.

An exemption removes part of the value of your property from taxation and lowers your taxes. For example, if your home and land is appraised at $200,000 and you qualify for a 20 percent homestead exemption, you will pay City of Arlington taxes on your property as if it was worth $160,000.

The City of Arlington's current property tax rate is $0.6398 per $100 of assessed value, which is a half-cent lower than the previous year. The City's tax rate makes up about 20 to 25 percent of an Arlington homeowner's total property tax bill, depending on the school district the resident's property is located in.

Property owners may file an application for homestead, disabled, veteran and over 65 exemptions with the Tarrant Appraisal District at
