Property Tax Postponement Deadline Extended to April 14 for Homeowners Statewide
February 9, 2023
State Controller Malia M. Cohen today announced that homeowners throughout California have extra time to apply for Property Tax Postponement (PTP) for the 2022-23 tax year. While the standard application deadline is February 10, 2023, homeowners statewide have until April 14 to apply.
Due to the impacts of weather-related and other emergencies, the Controller’s Office will grant a statewide extension allowing more time for homeowners to apply for postponement,” said Controller Cohen. The PTP program, administered by Controller Cohen, allows homeowners who are seniors, are blind, or have a disability and who meet eligibility requirements to defer payment of property taxes on their primary residence. The State Controller’s Office pays property taxes to the county for a homeowner approved for PTP. A lien is placed on the real property, or a security agreement filed for a manufactured home, until the account is paid in full.
In the 2021-2022 tax year, California homeowners were able to postpone more than $4.4 million in residential property taxes. Funding for PTP is limited, and applications are processed in the order they are received. Participants must reapply each year and demonstrate they continue to meet eligibility requirements.
