The property tax reimbursement or postponement programs once available to senior citizens and to persons who are blind, disabled, or who have difficulty paying property taxes have been eliminated.
Property Tax Reimbursement
The Franchise Tax Board's Homeowner Assistance program provided property tax relief to persons who were blind, disabled, or at least 62 years old, and met certain minimum annual income thresholds. However, the state budget deleted funding for this Program that once provided cash reimbursement of a portion of the property taxes that you paid on your home. For more information, call the Franchise Tax Board at 1-800-852-5711.
Property Tax Postponement
The State Controller's Property Tax Postponement program allowed persons who are blind, disabled, or at least 62 years old, and meet certain minimum annual income thresholds to postpone their property taxes. However, the state budget eliminated the Property Tax Postponement Program. For more information, call the State Controller's Office at 1-800-952-5661 or 916-327-5587.
