Questions about the Connecticut tax relief program for elderly?

With tax season upon us, now is the time to learn more about the program. This following information on the CT tax relief program was provided by Joan Reed Wilson, Attorney at Law, Pinder & Snow, LLC.

The State of Connecticut Homeowner’s (Circuit Breaker) Program provides real estate tax relief for seniors and disabled homeowners who qualify. Qualification depends on the homeowner’s gross income. Some towns also offer local abatement programs for additional savings.

If you or someone you know is over age 65 or totally disabled and had ¬†income in 2015 that was less than $42,900 (married) or $35,200 (unmarried), be sure to visit your Town’s Assessor with your completed 2015 tax return as soon as possible.

The application period runs from February 1 through May 15, 2016.
