The County of Santa Cruz offers the following postponement programs for property taxes:

  • Property Taxes Postponement for Senior Citizens, Blind or Disabled Persons

The State Controller’s Office (SCO) administers the Property Tax Postponement (PTP) program, which allows eligible homeowners to postpone payment of current-year property taxes on their primary residence. PTP applications are accepted from October 1 to February 10 each year. Go to the SCO website at http://www.sco.ca.gov/ardtax_prop_tax_postponement.html for more information. If you have any questions, call 1-800-952-5661 or email postponement@sco.ca.gov.

  • Senior and Disabled Citizens Exemptions 

Under Government Code Section 50079, persons age 65 and older may be exempted from paying the parcel taxes, provided that an enabling exemption is included in the wording approved by the ballot measure. A “parcel tax” is a special assessment that can be implemented only by the voters approving the ballot measure that authorizes the parcel tax/special assessment. These special assessments can be for a school district, park district, hospital district, etc. Contact your local school district to inquire about parcel tax exemptions for senior and disabled citizens
