Senior Citizens Property Tax Deferral Program

​You may qualify for the Senior Citizens Property Tax Deferral Program if you meet certain requirements and have difficulty paying your homestead’s property taxes.

Do I qualify for this program?

To qualify, both of the following must be true:

  • You or your spouse are age 65 or older.
  • Your household income is $60,000 or less.

How does it work?

If you enroll, the amount of property tax you pay is limited to 3 percent of your total household income. This limit applies for as long as you participate in the program.

Minnesota temporarily pays any property tax above that amount on your behalf. This is a loan from you the state to you, and you must repay the deferred property tax plus interest. We may take your individual tax refunds or other payments and apply them to this loan. For more information, see Revenue Recapture.
