PSA – Tax Deferral

Karnes County Appraisal District Deferred Property Tax Payments

PropertyTaxKarnes County Residents who are disabled or over 65, may be eligible to postpone paying current and delinquent property taxes on their home by signing a tax deferral affidavit at the Karnes County Appraisal District office. A tax deferral affidavit keeps homeowners from losing their homesteads because of delinquent property taxes.

Once the affidavit is on file, taxes are deferred — but not cancelled — as long as the owner continues to own and live in the home. Taxes continue to accumulate with interest, though. For complete details about property tax deferral, contact the Karnes County Appraisal District at 830-780-2433.

Deferred Property Tax Payments (Sec. 33.06)

Texans who are age 65 or older or who are disabled as defined by law may postpone paying current and delinquent property taxes on their homes by signing a tax deferral affidavit at the Karnes County Appraisal District office.

Once the affidavit is on file, taxes are deferred — but not cancelled — as long as the owner continues to own and live in the home. Taxes accumulate with 8 percent interest per year. The law extends the tax deferral to the surviving spouse of the person who deferred taxes on the homestead if the surviving spouse was at least 55 years old when the deceased spouse died.

A filed tax deferral affidavit keeps homeowners from losing their homesteads because of delinquent property taxes. A pending sale to foreclose on the homestead’s tax lien will also cease as a result of filing a tax deferral affidavit. In addition, no taxing unit can start or continue a lawsuit to collect delinquent taxes once an affidavit is filed. There are no penalties on delinquent taxes during the deferral period; however, a tax deferral does not cancel penalties that were already due.

All deferred taxes and interest become due when the homeowner or surviving spouse no longer own and live in the home. If the tax debt remains unpaid at that time, penalties may be imposed and taxing units may take legal action to collect the past due amount.

For further details about property tax deferral, contact the Karnes County Appraisal District at 830-780-2433. Information is also available on the Comptroller’s Property Tax Assistance Division’s website at www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/proptax/
