The Cass County Appraisal District has been contacted by a property owner about a service that the chief appraiser says is unnecessary.
Cass County Chief Appraiser LeAnn Lee said the form property owners are receiving is for “Designation of Homestead” from Homestead Recording Service.
“This in another service that is not necessary,” Lee stated. “They wanted $35 to do this. If you call the phone number they do disclose that this is “different” than the Homestead exemption that you apply for at the Appraisal District (and is free).”
