However, these taxes may be deferred without interest until February 14 for any taxpayer who is a senior citizen 62 years or older, totally or permanently disabled, or otherwise eligible whose household income does not exceed $40,000 per year. Applications for deferment are available at the Treasurer’s Office and must be returned to our office by September 15.
