How do I qualify for one of these deferral programs?

To qualify for either deferral program, your total household income must be equal to or less than $58,000 for the 2024 year.  The Household income includes both taxable and non-taxable income, including Social Security and pensions. The income limit may change each year. You must have a recorded deed to the property or you must be buying the property under a recorded sales contract. You may have a revocable trust.
You are not eligible for a deferral if you have a life estate in the property. For the Disabled Citizens’ Property Tax Deferral, you must be receiving disability benefits on December 31 of the year before you apply. You must send a copy of your federal Social Security award letter with your deferral application. For the Senior Citizens’ Property Tax Deferral, you must be at least 62 years of age by April 15 of the year you apply.  What if I miss the April 15th filing deadline? You may file your application between April 16 and December 1 with a late filing fee paid to the county. The fee will be based on 10% of the total amount due on your last year’s tax statement with a minimum of $20 and a maximum of $170.
