See attached https://www.tad.org/wp-contentpdf/templates/HomesteadApplication2019.pdf the homestead application and information for Tarrant County. Don’t pay any service to do assist you with this because it might be fraudulent. Make sure you updated your driver’s licenses to show your new home address (which proof is required to be attached to homestead form). The form is due back to the appraisal office by April 30th. If you have have not file from previous years or forgot to file, you still have time. The county usually allows you to file for the past two years.
