Property owners age 65 and older who have total household incomes of $65,000 or less are encouraged to apply for the Senior Citizen’s Assessment Freeze. This program may reduce your property tax bill by freezing the equalized assessed value of your property, which impacts the total tax you pay. It does NOT freeze your taxes, but it protects you from tax increases due to rising property values.
