Gov Mills says $3.5 million will be used from federal funds.
This she stated will enable some residents who are unable to pay taxes or are permanently disabled. According to her, “The loans would have to be repaid once the property is sold or becomes part of an estate. The tax deferral program will make sure vulnerable residents are able to stay in their homes while also providing property taxes to cities and towns, Mills said. Older residents and people with disabilities “deserve to live and age in the comfort of their homes without worrying they’ll lose them because they can’t afford the property taxes.
Governor Mills who said the program will be funded by the American Rescue Plan, in her words she said, “the program will be funded with money from the American Rescue Plan. It’s modeled after a similar program that existed in the 1990s”, the governor said”.
However, in a way the Governor is trying to help residents with the loans to make tax a lot easier for them, as this will help various ages in various situations.
