Senior Citizens & People with Disabilities Property Tax Deferral
Participants must apply each year with the Assessor-Treasurer's Office, be at least 60 years old on December 31 of the year in which you apply and not exceed an annual income of $52,741. For approval, the application for Senior Citizens or People with Disabilities must be completed and submitted along with the Deferral application.
If the property owner meets all of the requirements, the Department of Revenue pays the taxes and special assessments to Pierce County on behalf of the taxpayer. The deferred amounts paid by the state become a lien and must be repaid to the state, plus interest, when the property ownership is transferred (RCW 84.38).
