Property Tax Postponement
The State Controller’s Property Tax Postponement Program returned in 2016 after being suspended by the Legislature in 2009. The program allows homeowners who are seniors, are blind, or have a disability to defer current-year property taxes on their principal residence if they meet certain criteria including 40 percent equity in the home and an annual household income of $35,500 or less.
Applications for 2017-18 are now available. The State Controller’s team will begin processing completed applications October 1, 2017 in the order they are received. Please call (800) 952-5661 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to join our mailing list.
Filing period extended for homeowners affected by fires in Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Solano, Sonoma, and Yuba counties. For information, please refer to the flyer in English or en español.
