Information about Portability of Homestead

I went to our Property Appraiser's office today to get the latest info and forms to no avail. I left my name, phone number and e-mail address with them so they can contact me when they have the info.

So, I had to find it myself. If you are finding yourself in a similar situation here's the link to the forms:

Hopefully, our (and your) property appraiser's office will have this info soon. If you sold or "abandoned" a homestead in 2007 and qualified for homestead on a home as of Jan. 1, 2008 you have only one month - until March 1, 2008 - to apply for property tax portability and the homestead exemption. The portability application and other pertinent forms can be found at the DOR Web site referenced above.
