Homestead Exemptions

Homestead Exemptions reduce the taxable value of the property of a homeowner who claims that property as their primary residence. A homestead exemption generally applies only to the primary residence and not valid on a second home or land. Clear Creek ISD does not grant exemptions, this process is approved through the county appraisal district.

To qualify for a homestead exemption, the taxpayer must own and live in the home on January 1 of that tax year.
