California's Property Tax Postponement (PTP) Program, administered by Controller Cohen, allows homeowners who are seniors, are blind, or have a disability and who meet income, equity, and other requirements to postpone payment of property taxes on their primary residence.
Funding for PTP is limited, and applications will be processed beginning October 1 in the order they are received. Participants must reapply each year and demonstrate they continue to meet eligibility requirements. A lien will be placed on the real property, or a security agreement filed with the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for a manufactured home, until the account is paid in full.
Applications and additional program details can be found online or by calling (800) 952-5661.
CALIFORNIA'S MORTGAGE RELIEF PROGRAM
California Mortgage Relief Program offers financial assistance to eligible homeowners through a one-time only grant that does not have to be paid back. Qualifying homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgage or property tax payments due to pandemic-related financial hardships can get caught up.
Qualifying California homeowners with past-due property taxes can receive up to $20,000 to cover past-due property taxes. Please visit CaMortgageRelief.org for more information and to see if you qualify.
If you have questions regarding the application process, those questions must be directed to the California Mortgage Relief Program. Their contact information can be found on their website. Additionally, they have prepared an Application Walk Through video that you can view here.
For information regarding available exemptions for your property, such as a Homeowner's Exemption or a Disabled Veteran's Exemption, please contact the Yuba County Assessor's Office at (530) 749-7820.
