South Portland Property Tax Assistance Program  

The City offers a rebate of residential property tax payments for eligible residents who are at least 65 years old. To qualify, you first must be qualified to receive a tax credit under the provisions of the State of Maine Residents Property Tax Fairness Credit Program for the most recent calendar year.

Also, at the time of application, you must have owned or rented a homestead in the City for the entire two years prior to the date of application and been a resident of the City for at least seven out of ten preceding years. The complete Ordinance can be found here.

  1. Applications must be filed starting January 1 until April 30 each year. Note that applications must be received on or before April 30 each year.

  2. Please remember that you must complete an application every year in order to participate in the program.

  3. Any credits/refunds will be applied to your current tax bill. If your taxes are paid in full, or you are a renter, then you would receive a check.
