The state budget does not include funding for the Gonsalves-Deukmejian-Petris Senior Citizens Property Tax Assistance Law. Therefore, the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) will not issue Homeowner and Renter Assistance (HRA) Program instruction booklets and will not accept HRA claims. For the most current information on the HRA program, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for HRA.
Chapter 4, Statutes of 2009, suspended the Senior Citizens’ Property Tax Deferral Program effective February 20, 2009. As a result of the program suspension, the State Controller no longer accepts applications for property tax postponement. For the most current information on the PTP Program please visit the Controller's website at sco.ca.gov (Public Services).
