it is basically saying you won't run a business out of your house and it will reduce taxes on your house by a few hundred dollars.

protesting your taxes is different. that is just challenging the appraised value of your property by the county assessor.

No, filing for a Homestead Exemption and filing a protest because of a raise in your homeowners property tax are 2 different things.

Check out this site: www.hcad.org

Hope this helps.

homesteading puts a cap on the upper amount they CAN raise your property taxes each year. In addition if your house goes into tax forclosure it extends the amount of time (fm 6mo to 2yr) you have to redeem a sold tax lien.
