Over 65 Homestead Exemption
Homeowners age 65 and older will not be impacted by the passage of the bond propositions if they have filed for and received the Over 65 Homestead Exemption with Bowie Central Appraisal District. Their school district taxes are frozen and will not exceed the frozen dollar amount. More information is available at bowieappraisal.com.
In 2019, Texas Legislators passed a new law as part of HB 3 that requires all bond propositions for any school district to have the phrase ‘THIS IS A PROPERTY TAX INCREASE’’ on all ballot language for bond propositions. Due to this requirement, ALL VOTERS WILL SEE THIS STATEMENT ON THE OFFICIAL BALLOT LANGUAGE, EVEN IF THE TAX DOLLAR AMOUNT IS FROZEN AND WILL NOT EXCEED THE TAX CEILING.
