Longtime Owner Occupants Program (LOOP)

Help for Longtime Homeowners

We have seen many positive changes to our neighborhoods. And with those changes some home values have risen, causing some longtime homeowners to face potentially steep increases in their tax bills. Homeowners with substantial changes in their property assessment may qualify for a discount on Real Estate Taxes with the Longtime Owner Occupants Program (LOOP).

It’s not too late! If your property was eligible for LOOP starting in 2014, there is still time to apply and start receiving tax savings.

If you are approved, your tax bill will be reduced for 10 years with a one-time application. Applications will be accepted until June 30, 2015 and you have to meet the other requirements below.

New! LOOP is now open to homeowners who purchased their home after July 1, 2003 from certain family members - as long as they have been living in the home and paying a majority of the bills since at least July 1, 2003.

LOOP Eligibility Requirements:

  • You must own and have lived in this property as your primary residence since at least July 1, 2003. 
  • Your home is either a single family or a multi-unit property with no more than three residential units and one commercial unit. 
  • Your property has not received a tax abatement (unless you benefited from a government or non-profit subsidized low or moderate income housing assistance program).

  • The Real Estate Taxes on your property must be paid in full or you must be up-to-date on a payment plan (or have an application for a payment agreement pending).
  • There is an income limit based on Household size.

What do I do next?

  1. Fill out and submit the application (must be received by June 30, 2015).
