Williamson County, all school districts and the cities of Cedar Park, Florence, Georgetown, Jarrell, Leander, and Liberty Hill also offer seniors age 65 and older, disabled persons and disabled veterans a tax freeze ceiling.

Property owners can benefit from the state's homestead exemption.
The Williamson Central Appraisal District is supported by and represents all of the taxing entities in this county. They send out appraisal value notices to property owner in April. Owners are given a period of time from that point to protest their values. The taxing jurisdictions (entities) set their rates in August/September based on these values and their budgetary needs. The Williamson County Tax Assessor/Collector mails statements in October.
