Did you know WA State law provides tax benefit programs for senior citizens and the disabled? in the form of property tax exemptions and property tax deferrals. As you pack this year’s tax records away, you may want to look into whether you, a family member or someone you know might qualify for a property tax exemption, reduction or property tax deferral program. To qualify for taxpayer assistance or tax relief a person must apply for a senior citizen or disabled exemption and meet program qualifications. Its worth looking into – visit the King County Assessor website at http://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/assessor or call 206-296-3920 for more information and forms for the Senior Property Exemption and Deferral Program.
It may well be worth the time and effort to save money on future property tax bills.
