Exemption for Surviving Spouse of 100% Disabled Veteran

In the recent general election Proposition 1 was approved by Texas voters. This amendment to the constitution authorizes the legislature to provide an exemption from all or part of property taxes of the residence homestead for the surviving spouse of a 100% or totally disabled veteran. The surviving spouse may be entitled to the exemption if: 1) The individual was married to a 100% or totally disabled veteran at the time of the veteran’s death 2) The surviving spouse has not remarried since the death of the disabled veteran 3) The property was the residence homestead of the surviving spouse when the disabled veteran died 4) The property remains the residence homestead of the surviving spouse. This change will take effect January 1, 2012 and an application will be required. At that time, the Dallas Central Appraisal District will have an application available on our website or you may request an application by calling Customer Service at 214-631-0910.
