If a senior citizen applies Tax Exemption in the

Customer Question
If a senior citizen applies...
If a senior citizen applies for Property Tax Exemption in the State of Washington, does the State of Washington hold a Lien on the property if say; the property is sold or in the case of the property owner's death & the property is left to their adult children?
Would a party buying the property or has had it left to them in a Will/Trust have to pay back to the State of Washington the Senior Citizen's Exempt property Taxes the aforementioned Seniors did not pay because they qualified & signed up for the Senior Citizens Exemption property tax?
Thank you.

Hello and welcome! My name is Barrister and I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can..The exemption is just that, an exemption from tax. It isn't a delayed tax or deferred tax and as long as the senior citizen owned the property, they would be entitled to the exemption. Once the property was transferred out of their name, the exemption would expire and the new owner would resume paying the normal tax rate..So if the exemption had already been applied for the year with the taxes waived, then if the owner passed and left it to the children who did not qualify, the taxes would be prorated at the normal amount as of the date the property was transferred to someone else and the property would be taxed at the normal non-exempt rate..This is a link to a handy guide and questions and answers regarding the program:.http://dor.wa.gov/docs/pubs/prop_tax/seniorexempt.pdf..thanksBarrister

Thank you so very much I've noticed all Gov. type forms or descriptions are so confusing only a licensed Attorney can possibly understand them, certainly not Senior Citizens that have been Horse Trainers. My Son n law is a Prosecutor & I'm he sure gets tired of my asking legal questions, especially in areas that don't pertain to his expertise'. Thanks again, have a nice day wherever you are.
