Westport Assessor Paul Friia announced today that the Westport Assessor’s Office and the Human Services Department will begin taking applications for the state and local tax relief programs on Friday.

“The programs are open to homeowners who are totally disabled or who have reached the age of 65 by the date of application,” Friia said.

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 $33,500 for single, or $40,900 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.

The local Veteran’s Program offers $20,000 off of the assessment.  This is also based on qualifying income not to exceed $58,500 for single and $65,900 for married.  To be eligible for this program, discharge papers must be recorded with the Town Clerk.

Persons inquiring about these programs should contact the Assessor’s Office at 203-341-1070 or Human Services at 203-341-1050.  All applications will be taken by appointment only.  Detailed information of these programs are available on the Westport website: http://www.westportct.gov.
