The Program            

The Texas state law gives you the right. You may legally defer or postpone paying any property taxes on your homestead...for as long as you own and occupy it... the deferral applies to all property taxes on your homestead. The deferral only postpones the paying of your taxes. It doesn't cancel them. Interest is added at the rate of 8% per year. A penalty may not be imposed during deferral period.
It's a Win-Win Situation.   Here are your choices :
1. You pay your taxes each year (nothing new here)
