65+ & DISABLED TAX FREEZE

If you are a home-owner and your home is your principal place of residence and you are 65 or older or disabled, you will qualify to have your property value frozen. This means that the property value on your home will not increase unless there is a millage increase of an addition to the home.

Simply bring or send us a copy of your driver’s license or any proof of age or your disability papers and we will be thrilled to apply the Freeze to your property values.

The Tax Freeze does not freeze your taxes; it freezes your property’s value.

  • If the value of your home goes up due to inflation, your taxes will remain the same.
  • If you add onto your home, your home’s value will increase. At that point the freeze will fall off and be reapplied at the new value with the addition
  • If the millage rate increases, the freeze will fall off and be reapplied at the new value with the new millage rate figured in.
