Grayson County Real Estate Tax Relief for the Elderly/Disabled
Grayson County offers Real Estate Tax Relief for Elderly/Disabled taxpayers. If you are elderly (65 or over) or on full disability and you own your home and live there full time and have a household income of less than $27,500 and a net worth (not counting the dwelling and one acre of land) of less than $90,000, then you may qualify for help on your real estate taxes.

Commissioner of the Revenue Larry Bolt will be at the Fries Town Hall on Thursday, June 20, 2019 from 10:00am until 1:00pm to receive applications. If anyone thinks that they might qualify, then stop by Fries on the 20th or contact the Commissioner's Office anytime at 276-773-2381.
