Vote helps Oregon seniors



SALEM – The Oregon House of Representatives voted today to provide relief for seniors who were disqualified from the Senior and Disabled Property Tax Deferral Program in 2011. The legislation, HB 2510-B, allows people who were kicked out of the program under new, more stringent requirements to participate in the program again beginning in 2014.

“I am very pleased that we were able to revisit the Senior Property Tax Deferral Program this session. Knowing the strain it would put on retiree budgets, I fought unsuccessfully in 2011 to keep eligible seniors in the program.” Said Rep. John Huffman, R-The Dalles.

Those who wish to determine their eligibility should contact their County Assessor and the Oregon Department of Revenue. The 700 spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis, so people are encouraged to respond quickly.
