Do you support eliminating property taxes for low-income seniors?
Politicians are always talking about protecting seniors. They will promess almost anything for a vote. But where do they stand where it counts, in your wallet?
Many seniors on fixed income/pension are struggling right now. They have been hit hard by inflation and rising food/energy prices.
Many of them worked hard to pay off their homes and contribute all their working life to Social Security. So how do we reward them?
They are taxed higher at tax time because they no longer qualify for the EIC (Earned Income Credit) and have to pay taxes on their Social Security check.
On top of this, they have to pay property taxes every year regardless of their economic situation and whether they own the house or not.
Wait a minute Blue! Shouldn't the govt treat everyone equally?
In a perfect society, I would say yes. Everyone should be treated the same and pay the same for services. But as long as we have an entire section of the electorate unfairly taxed and neglected, these issues must be addressed.
Let me know what you think. Vote now, leave a comment, reply, share with all your friends and Rave!!!
