Residential property tax refund and credit programs exist in nearly every state, including the District of Columbia, but few people know about them or the process to apply may be too complex. AARP Foundation Property Tax-Aide is making it easier for homeowners and, in some cases, renters to apply for property tax refund and credit programs.
Older adults who take advantage of property tax programs can receive, on average, $1,100 in either tax credits or a direct refund. Some states also offer tax credits for renters, based on the actual amount of rent they paid. You can use the money you save to keep your home well maintained, to pay bills — or to spend on whatever you want.
Property Tax-Aide simplifies the application process with our innovative online tools paired with highly trained Property Tax-Aide Volunteers. Our program volunteers use the screener tool to find out if you're eligible to apply for a property tax refund or credit. If you are eligible, our volunteers then use an application tool to help you complete the appropriate forms and prepare them for filing.
 Actual amount for eligible applicants varies by state and determined by each state’s program criteria
