Q: Are there NOT ANY "exemptions" for persons over the age of 65? I am an 87-year-old male living on a small pension from American Airlines & Social Security. The tax rate "approved by the voters" does not take in consideration of facts, like these.
A: This upcoming fiscal year the City Council increased the Over 65/disabled Person exemption to $50,000 from $45,000 for property tax relief. To apply for this exemption, visit the Dallas County Appraisal District’s website. Also, the City of Irving’s website has more information about the tax exemption and how to apply.
