Welcome to Cooke County Appraisal District!

You may have received a letter in the mail stating your exemption was either changed, denied, or modified. 

Taxing Unit                             Prior Year                Prior Year                Current Year           Current Year

This is only removing the Homestead Exemption for a part of the county tax rate.  Section 11.13 (g) of the Texas Property Tax Code does not allow this exemption when you are receiving an over 65 or social security exemption.  When this was brought to our attention CCAD had to make the correction.

This $3,000 exemption amounts to less than a penny in saving.
