SB 771 adds this section to permit temporary cessation of agricultural use during drought. Qualified open-space land does not become ineligible for the special appraisal when a drought declared by the governor has created the necessity to cease agricultural use for longer than the normal time and when the owner intends to return the land to agricultural use to the degree of intensity that is typical in the area when the drought ends.
Model forms, exemption applications, and special-use applications are made available here as a public courtesy.
Please mail completed forms to:

* All homestead applications must be accompanied by a copy of applicant’s driver's license or other information as required by the Texas Property Tax Code. Applicant may also be required to complete an affidavit to qualify for an exemption under certain situations.
