What the heck is this thing I've gotten in the mail twice now. It looks like a very deceiving document, but I just want to check before I throw it away. It is asking for $35.00 for a Designation of Homestead, and the following two phrases are also on the request form: i)The Designation of Homestead does not affect and is not a Homestead Tax Exemption; and ii) It is not an official document of the State of Texas.

Do I need this, if I already have a Homestead Exemption on my home/property?

I think it is just junk mail. I remember getting those after I bought my house. Trying to scam people.

Throw it away. Fill out your homestead exemption and never fill out anything else. You get sooo much junk after you buy. Its ridiculous.

I just bought a home and received the same thing. I just threw it away. Sounded fishy to pay for that.
