Why was my $250 senior or disability deduction removed from my property tax account?

Every year in January, the Tax Assessor's office sends out an annual post-tax-year statement to anyone already receiving a senior or disability deduction. This statement must be filled out and returned to the Tax Assessor's office by March 1st. This is done to see if the resident still meets the income requirements. Two or three reminders are sent out. For those that do not return the statement, the Tax Collector's office is notified and the deduction is disallowed and the property owner is billed for the amount ($250).

Once the deduction is disallowed, the property owner must reapply to receive the deduction again.
