Legislation signed into law in Texas expands the state’s exemption from property tax for property owned by charitable organizations that provide housing for people experiencing homelessness. H.B. 115 would change the number of years an organization needs to be in existence, depending on the size of the county. The legislation also requires the property to be located on a tract of land that’s at least 15 acres and removes the requirement that the property must be on a single campus.
