United States News, United States Headlines

Overall the governor's proposal could benefit 1.8 million residents, up from the 470,000 who currently get the property tax assistance.

It's a fraction of the state's more than $46 billion budget, and the governor aims to make this an annual program. Currently, the average property tax benefit is $626, with eligibility limited to homeowners making $75,000 or less if they're under 65 and not blind or disabled. Those older than 65 or who are blind or disabled face a $150,000 income cap currently.
