Frisco City Council approved the city's first-ever residential homestead exemption during Tuesday's meeting. The 7.5 percent exemption will save the average homeowner about $143 on a tax bill.
The city's exemption is separate from the school district's homestead exemption, according to the city. A homestead exemption removes part of a home's value from taxation, effectively lowering a homeowner's taxes.
According to the city, the average home appraisal is increasing by 9 percent. With an average Frisco home appraised at $391,923, the taxes due would be about $1,922. With the exemption, the average tax bill would be lowered to $1,778.   Read More...
