PROPERTY STABILIZATION ACT
The Property Tax Stabilization Program is a new State program that allows certain senior citizen residents to stabilize or freeze their property taxes. An applicant MUST be 65 years old or more, a permanent resident of the State of Maine and have owned a home in the State of Maine for at least ten years. Applications are available at the Town Office. They must be submitted no later than December 1st, and if approved their taxes will be frozen at the 2022 rate for 2023. This program as currently passed will require annual applications to be made each year for the freeze in taxes to be maintained. There is no income limit for this program and if you should sell your property and purchase another residence in the State of Maine, your frozen tax rate will follow you, regardless of the new Town's valuation or Mil rate. Any questions regarding this program can be directed to our Assessors' agent, Jackie Robbins ay (207) 852-1840
