What is the Property Tax Postponement Program?

The State Controller’s Property Tax Postponement 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 at least 40 percent equity in the home and an annual household income of $49,017 or less (among other requirements). The deferment of property taxes is secured by a lien against the property which must eventually be repaid.

How do I qualify for this program?

To be eligible for Property Tax Postponement Program, you must:

  • Be at least age 62, or blind, or have a disability
  • Own and occupy the home as your primary place of residence
  • Have a total household income of $49,017 or less
  • Have at least 40 percent equity in the property
  • Other requirements. 

More details are available on the State Controller's website.
