*When you receive an over-65 or disabled person exemption , you also receive a "tax ceiling" for your total city and school taxes. The ceiling is set at the amount of taxes you pay in the year that you qualify for the over-65 or disabled person homeowner exemption. The city and school taxes will not increase above the "tax ceiling" amount as long as you own and live in that home unless you improve your home (other than by normal repairs an maintenance). For example, if you add a garage or a room to your home, your tax ceiling can rise. It will also change if you move to a new home.

**Exact exemption amounts vary based on the disability percentage. For more information contact the Dallas Central Appraisal District.

The Dallas Central Appraisal District (DCAD) approves all exemptions according to the Texas Property Tax Code. Exemption forms must be requested through the DCAD. You may print the exemption form online by retrieving your property account at Dallas Central Appraisal District. The forms cannot be obtained at the city’s Tax Office.
