Tax Ceiling Transfer Certificate Request Form

Tax Ceiling Transfer Certificate Request Form

If you have moved and are requesting to transfer the Over 65, Disabled Person, 100% Disabled Veteran (or surviving spouse), Surviving Spouse of Member of Armed Forces Killed in Action exemption, or Surviving Spouse of First Responder Killed in Action exemption to a property in another county, please complete a Tax Ceiling Transfer Certificate Request form.  On the form, please identify the property you've moved from, indicate the year you would like to remove each exemption, and provide your new mailing address so we can send you your Tax Ceiling Transfer Certificate.

  1. Exemptions have to be applied over a year on the previous residence before they freeze and can be transferred.
  1. This freeze ceiling is calculated by the appropriate tax office and provided to the appraisal district.
  1. The frozen taxes on your home cannot increase as long as you own and live in that home, and as long as you don’t add any improvements to the property. 
  1. The tax ceiling is the frozen dollar amount you pay based on the year that you qualify for the over-65 or disabled persons exemption and the homestead exemption.
  1. The taxes on your home may go below the ceiling, but the taxes will not be more than the amount of your ceiling.


** TAX CEILING TRANSFER CERTIFICATE IS DIFFERENT THAN A TAX CERTIFICATE - A TAX CERTIFICATE IS ISSUED BY THE WILLIAMSON COUNTY TAX OFFICE TO SHOW TAXES HAVE BEEN PAID AND NO TAXES ARE DUE**
