Property Taxes

The Central Appraisal District of Collin County appraises property annually and certifies appraised values to the government entities. A person age 65 or older or a disabled person may apply for an exemption from city taxation of $50,000 appraised value of the resident’s homestead. This can be done by submitting an affidavit claiming eligibility to the appraisal district. Application forms can be found on the appraisal district website.
