State Representative Candidate, Stanley Nacewicz, proposed a new initiative that would essentially freeze property taxes for Senior Citizens who meet specific criteria.
The program, â€œProperty Tax Freeze for Seniorsâ€, would halt property tax hikes for Senior Citizens who meet both of the following criteria:
- He or she must be of the age 65 and over and
- Must have 15 years residency in the town for which they apply
â€œMore and more people these days, particularly our Senior Citizens, are getting the boot because of unfair property tax hikes,â€ Nacewicz says. â€œAs Chief Tax Assessor for the City of Attleboro, Iâ€™m constantly hearing stories of whole families being forced to move out-of-state or with loved ones because they canâ€™t afford property taxes.â€
