Senior homeowners seeking assistance in paying their property taxes may wish to consider the Seniors’ Property Tax Deferral (SPTD) program. This program allows eligible senior homeowners to defer all or part of their annual property tax through a low-interest home equity loan with the Government of Alberta. This is a voluntary program that can free up funds for senior homeowners to use on other expenses such as home renovations thereby supporting them to stay in their homes as long as possible.
For more information on SPTD program and other programs and services for seniors, visit www.health.alberta.ca/seniors.html or call the Alberta Supports Contact Centre at 1-877-644-9992 or 780-644-9992 in the Edmonton area.
