NO TAX IMPACT for Citizens Over the Age of 65

The State Property Tax Code allows for school property taxes on an individual homestead to be "frozen" at the age of 65. If you are 65 years of age or older and you have filed for the "Over 65 Homestead Exemption," there is a capped amount of school taxes to be paid. The only exception is if improvements are to be made to the home. Please contact the Comal County Appraisal District if you have questions regarding the Over 65 Homestead Exemption.
