Tax Relief For Seniors and People with Disabilities

It’s tax season! We have a special message from Rod Dembowski, King County Council Member.

Too many senior homeowners struggle to pay their property taxes. That’s why for years I’ve advocated for a change in the state’s senior property tax exemption law to allow more seniors to qualify for relief.

I am pleased to report, beginning this year, if you are 61 years or older, own your home, and have an annual income of $58,423 or less, you may be eligible for property tax relief.

 

This means that tens of thousands of senior homeowners that weren’t eligible before can now apply for a reduction in their property taxes.

To learn more and apply, you can go to: www.kingcounty.gov/depts/assessor/TaxRelief or call 206-296-3920.

 

You may also Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center at 206-365-1536 to schedule an appointment with Social Worker, Alain Rhone, for assistance in completing the documents.
