Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens is a State program that allows certain residents over age 65 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 tax year of your original application. 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. Note: Additional materials may be required to be included with your application. Due by December 1 each year.
