Property Tax Assessment Freeze

This program allows a qualified senior citizen to have your home’s assessed value “frozen” at a base year value to prevent increases due to inflation.  This does NOT mean that your property taxes will not increase because other factors affect your tax bill.

To qualify you must:

  • Be 65
  • Have household income less than $55,000
  • Have lived in your home for at least 1 year
  • Own the property
  • Have the property tax bill in your name

You must reapply every year with proof of your household’s annual income.  The deadline for filing is November 1.  Please contact your Boone County Council on Aging Outreach Counselor at (815) 544-9893 for all of the details.
