In September 2004, voters in Georgetown approved an initiative that freezes the property taxes for homeowners over 65 or disabled and mirrors the State of Texas Constitutional Amendment, Proposition 13, which passed overwhelmingly, statewide in 2003. “Prop 13” gives local governments the option of “freezing” taxes for the elderly and disabled. This program, which “freezes” approximately 27% of the Georgetown property tax revenue, may impact future property tax rates for Georgetown.

Sales tax rate for Georgetown is currently 8.25%.
