How much of my taxes can I defer under this program?
For each grand list year, you are allowed to defer any amount of property tax up to 50% of the tax that would otherwise be due, up to $4,000. The minimum amount of deferral is equal to the amount of tax credit allowed under section103-12. The tax deferral, combined with all other tax credits and exemptions, may not exceed 75% of the tax that would otherwise be due. The tax assessor's office will advise the applicant of the maximum tax deferral amount if the 75% limit is exceeded.
