Harris County Pct. 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia announced Wednesday his intention to propose an extension to county homeowners property tax exemption for seniors and disabled homeowners be placed on the court agenda Tuesday.

The plan would eliminate county property tax liability for seniors 65 years of age and older as well as disabled homeowners and disabled military veterans, with homes valued at $260,000 or less. Qualifying homeowners with homes valued at $260,000 or more would save at least $350 next year (and annually going forward) on their property tax bills.
