Service Details

Description

Property Tax Deferral for Senior Citizens may allow older adults to defer a portion of the property taxes that are owed.


On this program, individuals will pay three percent of the total household income based on the prior year income. The state pays the remainder as a loan.


When the home sells or the deferral program is voluntarily cancelled, the loan plus interest must be repaid.
