The Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector sent a blanket apology Tuesday to seniors and disabled individuals who might have done a double take this week upon viewing their property tax bills.
Mike Sullivan said the mistake involves an exemption that will impact less than 40,000 of the 900,000 taxpayers who were sent notices.
"It was brought to my attention last night that there was an error on some of those tax bills. Specifically, Houston Community College System taxpayers who have an Over-65 or Disabled Homestead Exemption should have received a $120,000 exemption. Instead they received a $90,000 exemption, the same as last year," Sullivan said on Tuesday.
