Proposition 2


Proposition 2


The constitutional amendment increasing the amount of the residence homestead exemption from ad valorem taxation for public school purposes from $25,000 to $40,000.

Major Issues

1.  Increases the Homestead Exemption by $15,000.  Still no reduction impact for seniors/disabled, as for those >65 yrs old - yet;

2. Per Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick - "This would increase the amount homeowners can deduct from their home's value before school tax tates are levied from $25,000 to $40,000";

3.  Video explanation of the Props and their impacts from Judge Kristin Bays.
