PROPERTY TAX REBATE FOR SENIORS

December 20, 2000

I want to remind senior citizens that now is a good time to see if you qualify for the Elderly Homeowner-Renter tax credit. This is a property tax rebate program for households who have at least one member over 62 years old. You are eligible whether you own or rent your home, and if your taxes or rent exceed a specified percentage of your income. You don’t have to be retired or file income tax to qualify.

Your income doesn’t necessarily have to be low, but you won’t know whether you qualify or not until you fill out the worksheet, and I’ll be glad to help you with that.

You can pick up the form—it’s called a 2EC—at any tax preparer’s office, or you can get in touch with me, and I’ll ship a couple off to you.
