Senior and disabled taxpayers have until February 11 to apply to the State Controller’s Office to have their property taxes on their primary residence postponed. To qualify, a taxpayer must:
- Be at least 62, blind, or disabled;
- Own and occupy their primary residence;
- Have a total income of $35,500 or less; and
- Have at least 40% equity in the property.
Postponed property taxes become due when the taxpayer moves, sells, defaults on a senior loan, refinances, obtains a reverse mortgage, or dies.
