  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.
