Did you know that Washington State law provides two tax benefit programs for senior citizens and the disabled? The two programs are: 1) property tax exemptions, and 2) property tax deferrals.
More than 26,000 eligible tax payers have not applied for these benefits. Are you one of them?
- Annual household income of $35,000 or less
- Own and occupy a house, mobile home, condo or co-op,
- 61 years of age by December 31 of the previous year, or
- Retired because of physical disability or
- Veteran with a 100% service-connected disability
- You are a widow, or widower, or state registered domestic partner at least 57 years of age whose spouse or state registered domestic partner had an exemption at the time of death
