Uh.... it's even better than that. We don't have state income tax for ANYONE.

I believe there was something recently passed regarding freezing property taxes at a certain age, but alas, I'm too young to have paid that close attention to it. Anyone else have that info?

Most counties, cities and school districts have a tax freeze program for residents 65 and over. Once you turn 65 your taxes are frozen at the current rate unless the appraisal goes up. Some cities also have an additional tax exemption for seniors. Rowlett has a $60,000 tax exemption for seniors as well as the tax freeze. You would have to check with individual taxing authorities to find what each offers.

This is in reference to property taxes, and most cities/school districts/etc exempt some portion of your home's value if you are over 65. There are also exemptions for your home being your primary homestead (as opposed to a rental or a vacation home) and for being disabled - and these are generally all cumulative.
