AUSTIN, TEXAS, April 2nd, 2019– Representative Mayes Middleton filed legislation that allows local taxing entities to offer a 100% homestead exemption from the imposition of property taxes.

Middleton said in a statement: “I am adamant that the legislature deliver meaningful property tax relief this session. If not at the state level, we should allow local taxing entities the option of raising their local homestead exemptions.” Representative Middleton filed House Bill 3127, which increases the maximum allowable local homestead exemption from 20% to 100%.

Representative Middleton continued, “Texans are literally being taxed out of their homes. I am hopeful that this legislation can allow for greater relief to homeowners.”
