    • Occupy the residence as your principal residence

There will be a process change for those applying for a disability grant online – we will not be asking for documentation upfront at the time of submission. We are making the process easier and streamlined.

Property Tax Deferment 

  • You may qualify to defer your taxes on your principal residence for the current tax year, if you are: 
    • 55 years or older, a surviving spouse, or a person with disability, or
    • Financially support a dependent child with disability or is under the age of 18
  • You must apply online, not at the municipality. 
  • If you currently defer your property taxes, please refer to your Annual Statement of Account to verify you have selected the automated renewal option or not.
