Without knowing when you filed for your homestead tax exemption, I can't answer your question specifically. According to HCAD's (Harris County Appraisal District) website, you must mail your homestead application between January 1 and April 30th. They do not accept early applications. If you missed the April 30th deadline, you are still able to apply up to one year after the date taxes become delinquent for the year.
