Do I Qualify for Tax Freeze?
You may be eligible for the Tax Freeze Program if you meet certain age, income, and residency requirements.
Apply for Tax Freeze
If you are a new applicant this year, the Tax Freeze Program will freeze your 2017 taxes based on the property tax amount for 2016.
If you were approved for the Tax Freeze Program prior to 2016, your taxes will be "frozen" at the property tax amount for the year of your approval.
Improvements to the primary residence (such as adding a room, carport, or garage) will result in a "proportional increase" to the frozen base tax amount. Certain land use restrictions may make a portion of the property ineligible.
To apply for Tax Freeze on 2016 taxes, please contact Trustee Customer Service at 222-0200, option 2 to receive an application. The deadline to apply is April 5, 2017. Signed applications must be postmarked no later than April 5, 2017 for all entities, except for the City of Memphis (the deadline for the City of Memphis is October 5, 2016). In addition, please provide a copy of your tax return or complete the online affidavit
verifying income if no tax return is available.
