Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens

The Property Tax Stabilization

Program: A Guide for Applicants

What is it?

Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens, also known as the Property Tax Stabilization Program (the “Program"), is a State program that allows certain senior-citizen residents to stabilize, or freeze, the property taxes on their homestead. As long as you qualify and file a timely application each year, the tax billed to you for your homestead will be frozen at the amount you were billed in the prior tax year. Eligible residents who move may transfer the fixed tax amount to a new homestead, even if that new homestead is in a different Maine municipality.

Who qualifies?

To be eligible for the Program, an individual must meet all of the following as of April 1 of the property tax year for which they are requesting stabilization (so for applications due December 1, 2022, qualifications must be met as of April 1, 2023)


 Vienna (Vy-enna) a town in Kennebec County was settled in 1786 and incorporated on February 20, 1802 from portions of Goshen and Wyman's plantations. The community was named for what is now Vienna, Austria. (see History of Vienna).


Small, quiet and picturesque, Vienna is located on the northwesterly corner of Kennebec County, 22 miles northwest of Augusta the state capital and just 12 miles down Rt. 41 from Farmington the Franklin County seat.

Vienna lies within the foothills of the western Maine mountains. On a clear day McGaffey Mountain — the highest point in Kennebec County—which is located in Vienna, provides views of Mount Washington, Mount Blue, the Camden Hills and Mount Katahdin.
