A: Texas Tax Code Section 11.13 provides exemptions for both the elderly and for homeowners with disabilities, but the specifics of the exemptions may differ. Section 11.13(c) details the exemption for individuals who are disabled as defined by federal Social Security guidelines, while Section 11.13(d) outlines the exemption for homeowners who are 65 years of age or older. Each subsection sets forth the conditions and qualifications necessary to receive the exemption.

It's important to review the provisions of the Tax Code carefully to understand the eligibility criteria and how they apply to your situation. If you require a deeper understanding or need to apply for these exemptions, you may consider reaching out to a tax professional or an attorney familiar with Texas property tax law. They can provide guidance tailored to your specific circumstances.
