The Senior Valuation Protection Option freezes the property valuation of residential homeowners who are 65 years of age or older if they meet specific qualifications and make application to the County Assessor.  The valuation freeze is for three years and may be renewed every third year.  This does not freeze your property tax rate but it does freeze the property valuation. 

  • Homeowner must be 65
  • Resided in home minimum 2 years
  • Annual income must be below $37,584 (one owner) and $46,980 (multiple owners)
  • Income based on total taxable and non-taxable of all owners
