What is a tax freeze?

Featured in Pay Property Taxes, County of Benton

The Freeze does not freeze your taxes, it freezes your Taxable Value. When you reach the age of 65 (or if you are older) you qualify for a Freeze. This also applies if you are on Social Security Disability. Simply supply us with a copy of your driver’s license or birth certificate for verification of age.

If you are disabled, a copy of your Medicare card or Award letter from Social Security will work as verification. You will not lose the Freeze unless you add on to your home. At that point the Freeze will be removed and reapplied at the new value. The taxable value will be frozen but if the millage rate changes your taxes can also change.
