Tax Postponements:

 

Important Notice

In February 2009, the State Legislature indefinitely suspended the Property Tax Postponement Program. Since that time, the state has been working with the Legislature to restore the program or find alternative ways to assist senior, blind and disabled homeowners with their property taxes. However, the Property Tax Postponement Program remains suspended.
