Exemptions exclude a part or whole value of a property from taxation. This lowers the tax amount due on a property. The taxing entity’s governing body determines what exemptions are offered for each taxing unit. The exemptions offered by the City of Eagle Pass are:
Over 65 Residence Homestead Exemption
This exemption exempts $9,000 off the total taxable value. To qualify, you must own your home on January 1st, the property owner must be 65 years of age or older and the property be their homestead.

In order to qualify for this payment plan, the property owner must notify our office and make the 1st installment no later than January 31st. The payment deadlines are as follows:
- The 1st installment must be paid no later than January 31st.
