Property Tax Postponement

Concerned about your ability to pay your property taxes? The State, through the State Controller’s Office, offers a Property Tax Postponement Program which 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.
