Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember –With the cost of living in California at an all-time high and the ongoing financial devastation caused by the COVID-19 shutdowns, we all know someone who is struggling to make ends meet. The challenge can be greatest for retirees on a fixed income and those with disabilities that are unable to work. There is help available for some of these most vulnerable homeowners.
The State Controller’s Office administers the Property Tax Postponement (PTP) Program which enables many senior and disabled homeowners to defer payment on their residential property taxes. Last year, California homeowners received more than $4.3 million in property tax assistance through this program.
In order to be eligible for PTP, applicants must meet certain requirements, including income, home equity, age, and other qualifications. PTP participants must reapply each year to demonstrate they continue to meet eligibility requirements.
The application period for the 2021-2022 tax year begins October 1st, 2021 and ends on February 10th, 2022. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
