The State Controller’s Property Tax Postponement (PTP) Program allows senior, blind or disabled homeowners to defer current-year property taxes on their principal residence.  To qualify, homeowners must meet certain criteria including having at least 40 percent equity in their home and an annual household income of $35,500 or less.

Applications are available online and may be filed with the State Controller’s Office beginning Oct. 1.
