I recently purchased a new home in Frisco. I am in Denton county. So, I submitted the forms for the homestead exemption for both Denton and Collin county. Do I need to do this every year, or do you just do this once?

Welcome to Frisco and thanks for your question concerning dealing with two appraisal districts. Citizens living in the City of Frisco, but in Denton County will need to submit their homestead exemption form to both Denton and Collin County Appraisal Districts. Any time they have a question or concern about the value of their property or their exemptions, they need to remember both appraisal districts must be contacted. As long as this home remains your only homestead residence, you file only the one time. Once in a while the appraisal district will see an address change and/or name change on a tax account and will send a letter asking for a refile on your homestead exemption. If this occurs, make sure you complete the refile application and return it to the appraisal district. Thanks for your question, Frances Justus, Tax Assessor/Collector
