Assistance Programs for Seniors:

Senior Tax Relief Programs

Desecription: Programs are available through Wake County government to help seniors pay their property taxes. Specifically, the programs are available to low-income seniors, disabled homeowners and disabled veterans. The original deadline to apply was June 1, 2024. However, the county is accepting late applications through the end of 2024 for those with physical or mental illness, or a death of the person or an immediate family member.

There is a section on the application to explain the reason for the late application. Each request will be considered on a case-by-case basis. For more on the program and how to apply, please follow the link: https://www.wake.gov/departments-government/tax-administration/tax-bill-help/need-help-paying-your-property-tax-bill 

Important Note: While a person may qualify for multiple programs, a person may only select one program. 

Program Highlights: 

Reduce the taxable value of your home:
Homeowners who are 65 and older or 100% disabled can get $25,000 or up to 50% off their home value, whichever is greater, if they meet certain income and ownership requirements. Married couples can qualify even if only one partner is 65+ or disabled. This tax relief does not need to be paid back.

OR

Pay only a percentage of your income:
Seniors and those 100% disabled who’ve owned and occupied their homes for more than five years can choose a program that ensures their property tax bill will not be more than 4-5% of their income. Homeowners might have to pay some of this tax relief back, for example, if they move or sell their home.

OR

Veteran Discount:
Veterans with a total and permanent service-connected disability, or their unmarried surviving spouse, can get $45,000 off their property value, no matter what their income. This tax relief does not need to be paid back.
