Senior citizens are no longer required to file renewal forms for one of the two 2019 property tax exemptions available to them. A new law taking effect this year eliminated the annual renewal requirement for the Senior Exemption but kept it for the Senior Freeze. Any senior who received the Freeze last year should receive a renewal application in the mail the week of January 13, 2020. Those seniors not on the freeze will receive a postcard.
Eligibility requirements for the Senior Freeze Exemption
- The senior applicant has been the owner-occupant of the property since January 1, 2018
- The combined 2018 income of all members of the household is less than $65,000.
