The Westport Assessor’s Office and the Human Services Department are now taking applications for the state and local tax relief programs.
The local programs are open to homeowners who are totally disabled or who have reached the age of 65 by the date of application. For state programs, homeowners must have reached the age of 65 by Dec. 31, 2013.
Qualified applicants for the state program are citizens who own their own homes or hold a life- use title to their home, have resided in Connecticut for one year prior to filing application, and whose qualifying income does not exceed $34,100 for single, or $41,600 for married couples.
Westport’s local program provides qualified homeowners either a tax credit with a maximum income level of $55,000 and/or a tax deferral with a maximum income level of $75,000. Qualified homeowners with incomes of $75,000-$100,000 are able to defer tax increase from the previous year only.
