new tax laws for seniors
During its most recent session, the Maine Legislature passed a law that allows certain senior residents ages 65 and older to stabilize, or freeze, the property taxes on their homestead. The State will fully reimburse municipalities for lost revenue.
The law goes into effect on August 8, 2022 and applies to property tax years beginning April 1, 2023.
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.
Stabilization Application - THE FILING DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 1, 2022
