L.D. 290 PROPERTY TAX STABILIZATION PROGRAM INFORMATION

WHAT IS IT?

Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens, also known as the Property Tax Stabilization Program (the “Program”), is a State program that allows certain senior-citizen residents to stabilize, or freeze, the property taxes on their homestead. As long as you qualify and file a timely application each year, the tax billed to you for your homestead will be frozen at the amount you were billed in the prior tax year. Eligible residents who move may transfer the fixed tax amount to a new homestead, even if that new homestead is in a different Maine municipality.

WHO QUALIFIES?

To be eligible for the Program, an individual must meet all of the following as of April 1 of the property tax year for which they are requesting stabilization (so for applications due December 1, 2022, qualifications must be met as of April 1, 2023):

1) at least 65 years old,
2) a permanent resident of Maine,
3) have owned a Maine homestead for at least ten years, and
4) be eligible for a homestead exemption on the property they are placing in the Program.
