NEW - Property Tax Stabilization Program
Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens, also known as the Property Tax Stabilization Program, is a new State program that allows certain senior-citizen residents to stabilize, or freeze, the property taxes on their homestead. As long as you qualify and file a timely application each year, the tax billed to you for your homestead will be frozen at the amount you were billed in the prior tax year. Eligible residents who move may transfer the fixed tax amount to a new homestead, even if that new homestead is in a different Maine municipality. The filing deadline is December 1 of each year and must be applied for annually. Read More
