What is a Summer Tax Deferment?

If you are 62 years of age and had an income of less than $40,000 for the prior year, you may apply for a deferment of Summer taxes on your principal residence. An application for deferment filed with the City Treasurer by September 30 defers the due date for the Summer taxes to February 15. You may also be eligible for deferment of your taxes if you meet the income requirement and one of the following conditions: you are totally and permanently disabled, blind, a paraplegic or quadriplegic, veteran, or an eligible widow or widower. Applications for deferment are available at the Treasurer's Office and online.
