Property Tax Postponement Program

Applications accepted for reinstated program beginning in September 2016

On September 28, 2014, the Governor signed AB 2231, which reinstates the State Controller's Property Tax Postponement Program, with some revisions. This program will allow senior, blind, and disabled citizens with an annual household income of $35,500 or less and 40% equity in their homes to apply to defer payment of property taxes on their principal residence. Please note that Mobile Homes are excluded from the reinstated version of the postponement program. Under this bill, applications may be filed with the State Controller's Office beginning September 1, 2016. Applications will not be accepted prior to September 1, 2016. Please see the State Controller's Office Frequently Asked Questions on Property Tax Postponement. You may also call the State Controller's Office with further questions at (800) 952-5661.
