Property Tax Disaster Law in effect January 1st, 2020

House Bill 492 allows temporary tax exemption for qualified property that is declared by the governor to be located in a disaster area and is determined by the chief appraiser to be at least 15 percent damaged by the disaster.

According to the bill, persons owning a qualified property are entitled to an exemption for a portion of its appraised value. The bill states “the amount of the exemption authorized ... is determined by multiplying the appraised value, determined for the tax year in which the disaster occurred, of the property by...” its damage level assessment rating.
