Letter: Seniors need tax relief
Published 12:21 pm, Wednesday, December 12, 2012
Can't fight Town Hall? Wwell seniors, let's try. Wake up and start calling your RTM representatives. A small group of RTM members has been meeting over the last few months trying to come up with a better tax-relief program for seniors and the disabled.
Many states have very generous programs for seniors. New Jersey freezes senior's taxes at age 65. Florida has a Homestead Act. Texas freezes taxes at age 65. Fairfield has not made many changes in years, and now with the high taxes, seniors (and others) are having a hard time keeping their homes.
Let your voices be heard, you may not get another chance.
The RTM will vote on this issue Monday, Dec. 17 at 8 p.m. at the Board of Education Building on Kings Highway.
Please try to attend this meeting.
