What are the eligibility requirements?

You must meet all the following requirements to qualify for property tax deferral:

  • You must be 65 or older on January 1 of the year claimed.
  • You must not be earning any income, such as rent, from your property.
  • You must own and occupy your residence.
  • All property taxes for previous years must have been paid, either by you or the state though its deferral program.
  • If your home is subject to a mortgage less than five years old, you must obtain a subordination agreement from the lender. This means the mortgage holder agrees that the state's interest in the property would legally come before the mortgage holder’s interest in the property.
