California’s Property Tax Postponement Program lets eligible seniors as well as blind and disabled residents defer current-year property taxes on their principal residence.

Note that for the 2018-2019 tax year, however, the application filing period is over except for residents of certain counties affected by fires or floods. Those residents have until June 1 to apply.

Contact the California State Controller’s Office, which administers the program, or monitor its website for the application filing dates for the 2019-2020 tax year. The office notes that the funding for the program “is limited and distributed on a first come, first served basis.”

Age requirement: For the purpose of eligibility in its program, California defines “seniors” as those 62 and older. Seniors must also meet other eligibility requirements, however, such as having an annual household income of $35,500 or less.
