Property Tax Stabilization Program for Residents 65 and Older-LD290

This new law requires a municipality to maintain the property tax on the homestead of a permanent resident who is at least 65 years of age at the amount billed in the year prior to an application for stabilization. The amount by which the property tax assessed exceeds the stabilized amount must be paid to the municipality by the State. If an eligible individual moves to a different municipality, the stabilized property tax amount continues at the new location. An applicant for stabilization must be a permanent resident of the State and must have owned a homestead for at least 10 years. An application for stabilization must be made each year to continue eligibility.

Read the wording of the law here:  http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/bills/getPDF.asp?paper=SP0126&item=1&snum=130

This law WILL NOT change the amount that you owe on the tax bill you will receive in late July from our office.
Application and information can be found here: Tax Stabilization Application
