Active Military Service Property Tax Deferment

If you are serviceperson, deployed or mobilized for active service in time of war, you may qualify for a deferment of your property tax bill. You may authorize someone to apply for the deferment on your behalf.

  • This deferment does not include any tax payments that were delinquent prior to deployment or mobilization;
  • Interest on late deferral payments will be assessed back to their original due date;
  • Sewer, water, electric and other municipal charges may not be deferred;
  • If there is a mortgage on the property with an escrow account for property tax payments, contact your lender regarding the deferment.

Ownership

The deferment is limited to:

  • Property owned solely by the deployed or mobilized serviceperson;
  • Property owned together with a spouse/civil union partner.

The statute does not permit deferment for:

  • Property owned by the serviceperson and any other person;
  • Property owned by the serviceperson as a corporation, LLC, or partnership
