1. Learn about this resource.
Residents can defer, or delay, part or all of their property tax bill. Seniors 65 years or older are eligible to defer all property taxes, while those under 65 can defer the 10% increase in property taxes from the previous year. An interest rate of 6% is charged on property tax deferrals. If you are 75 years or older, your household earns less than $50,000 annually, you have household interest and dividend income less than $12,500, and have lived in your house for 25 years or more, you are not charged any interest.
You can defer the taxes until you move, sell the property, or deferred 25% of the property’s value—whichever comes first. Then, all of your deferred taxes will be due within 5-30 days, depending on the event.
This program is called the Property Tax Deferral Program and is offered by the Office of Tax and Revenue.
