Homestead Exemption Over 65

If you are 65 years of age or older you may qualify for an additional exemption on your property. This exemption can freeze your taxes per the Property Tax Code (section 11.26) and impact your tax bill if you are eligible. Contact the Williamson Central Appraisal District (512) 930-3787 to discuss qualifying for the OA65 Exemption, and the proper steps to take to transfer one homestead in Texas to another.

Once you have qualified for an exemption you may contact the Williamson County Tax Assessor Collectors office. We will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have in regards to your tax bill.

Installments/Quarter Payments

Sec. 31.031 of the Property Tax Code allows individuals who are disabled or at least 65 years of age and qualify for a homestead exemption to choose an installment payment option on the property in which the homestead is claimed.

As a reminder, taxpayers who have an active deferral on file will not have the option to enter into a formal quarter pay installment plan unless they first remove their deferral. Once a deferral is removed from an account all owed taxes become due and will accrue penalties, interest and attorney fees.

A signature is no longer needed to sign up for the installment plan. The first installment payment must be received or postmarked by the United States Postal Service no later than February 28. However, to avoid penalty and interest that begins accruing February 1, the 1st quarter payment installment must be received or postmarked no later than January 31. If your payment is not received by the required date or postmark of February 28th, you will not be eligible for the installment plan. To ensure your payment is processed accurately, please provide the property address or quick ref ID on the check or a separate attachment.

Quarter Payment Installment Schedule:
1st installment due - January 31
2nd installment due - March 31
3rd installment due - May 31
4th and final installment due - July 31   



Deferrals

Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Delinquent Tax Information

Texans who are age 65 or older or who are disabled as defined by law may postpone paying current and delinquent property taxes on their homes by signing a tax deferral affidavit at the Williamson County Appraisal District office. A filed tax deferral affidavit keeps homeowners from losing their homesteads because of delinquent property taxes. A pending sale to foreclose on the homestead’s tax lien will also cease as a result of filing a tax deferral affidavit. In addition, no taxing unit can start or continue a lawsuit to collect delinquent taxes once an affidavit is filed. There are no penalties on delinquent taxes during the deferral period; however, a tax deferral does not cancel penalties that were already due.

Once the affidavit is on file, as long as the owner continues to own and live in the home, taxes are deferred but not cancelled. Taxes accumulate with 8 percent interest per year. The law extends the tax deferral to the surviving spouse of the person who deferred taxes on the homestead if the surviving spouse was at least 55 years old when the deceased spouse died. All deferred taxes and interest become due when the homeowner or surviving spouse no longer own and live in the home. If the tax debt remains unpaid at that time, penalties may be imposed and taxing units may take legal action to collect the past due amount.

To postpone tax payments, you must file a Tax Deferral Affidavit and submit it to:

Williamson Central Appraisal District
625 FM 1460 Leander Rd.
Georgetown, TX 78626
(512) 930-3787

To remove the tax deferral, please complete the Deferral Removal Form and submit to:
