Apply now for the Senior Citizen Real Estate Tax Freeze Program, and “freeze” your property tax bill.
Under the Real Estate Tax freeze, the amount of property tax you pay each year will not increase, even if your property assessment or the tax rate changes. If your tax liability decreases due to a lower property assessment or a tax rate decrease, the amount of Real Estate Tax you owe will also be lowered to the new amount.
To qualify, you must be 65 years or older and live in and own your home. You can be 50 years old if you are the widow/widower of someone who was 65 years old at their time of death. The total annual household income must be $23,500 or less for a single person; $31,500 or less for a married couple. Once approved, homeowners do not have to apply again.
