How to Apply


If you met the eligibility requirements for both 2020  & 2021 and are filing for the first time (or reapplying to the program after being denied in a prior year), file Form PTR-1 and the appropriate verification form (PTR-1A / PTR-1B).


If you filed an application for 2020 and met all the eligibility requirements, file Form PTR-2 and the appropriate verification form (PTR-2A / PTR-2B).

Form PTR-2 is a personalized application that is not available online. If you qualify and have not received this application, call 1-800-882-6597.

The verification form is your proof of property taxes due and paid. Alternate documents to send as proof can be found in the Senior Freeze FAQ.

Note: We will begin mailing 2021 applications in early March 2022, to the last address on file. The US Postal Service does not forward application booklets.

PTR-1 applicants may print the application. PTR-2 applicants should call the Senior Freeze information line above.

The application deadline is October 31, 2022.
