Governor Little says lawmakers should look into property tax relief for some seniors

After housing costs and rising property taxes were a top concern raised by seniors during an AARP call-in with the governor last week, Gov. Brad Little told the many seniors on the line that more will be done to fix the “circuit breaker” property tax break for low-income seniors this year.

The Idaho Press reports, HB 389 two years ago booted many recipients off the program, which partially offsets property taxes for needy seniors and disabled Idahoans; this year, legislation partially repaired that by restoring some, but not all, of them.

Idaho legislators are gathering in Lewiston this week through Wednesday, for their biennial North Idaho Tour, sponsored by the Lewis-Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The next legislative session is set to convene Jan. 9th.
