To secure the postponed amount, a lien is recorded against the property. Interest is charged on the postponed taxes. The postponed amount and interest are not due until: (1) you move from the qualified property; (2) you sell or convey title to your home; (3) you die and you do not have a spouse or other qualified individual who continues to reside in the home; or (4) future property taxes or other senior liens are allowed to become delinquent. However, you may pay all or part of the obligation at any time.
