Parcel tax potentially targets senior citizens!!!
Original post made by Ray Johnson, Country Fair, on Mar 8, 2011
"Additionally, any persons who are either (a) 65 years of age or older or (b) receiving supplemental security Income for a disability, regardless of age, and the owner of a parcel used solely for the owner occupied, single-family residential purposes, MAY obtain an exemption from the levy of parcel tax, by submitting ANNUALLY an application of such owners or person, PRIOR TO JUNE 15 OF EACH YEAR, to the district."
So the point is that my parents in their 80's, no longer drive, are to remember to get a ride down to the district office each year prior to June 15th. to apply for a possible annual exemption? Of course if they ask I will comply but clearly this is an attempt by the authors and supporters of this initiative to get more money from seniors by hoping they do not apply for the exemption in the beginning for forget as years go by. Seniors please be aware of this.
