Senior citizens who meet eligibility requirements can work off up to $400 of their Larimer County property through the county’s Senior Tax Work-Off program.
Applications will be taken the week of Feb. 2 by appointment only. Appointments can be made by calling 970-498-7751.
Eligibility requirements include:
· Applicants must be at least 60 years of age.
· Applicants must own property and live on that property in Larimer County.
· Applicants must have a gross monthly income at or below $1,945 (for 1 person) and $2,622 (for 2 people).
Established in 1981, the tax work-off program is a method for senior citizens to work off a portion of their property tax bill. Those accepted into the program are placed in temporary jobs in Larimer County departments.
The program was developed to address the challenge for seniors on fixed incomes to afford the higher property taxes that rising housing costs incur. For more information, call 970-498-7751 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
