Senior Citizens Are Not Free from Taxes
The state has decided that senior citizens are not free from taxes anymore, thanks to the foreclosure crisis.
The senior citizens of America reeling under property taxes are seeking help from the counties. The state has stopped providing aid following freeze in cash flow.
One of the victims is octogenarian Colleen Meagher who is concerned that she will lose the house that has been her home since 1984. Bank of America sent a stern note to her asking her to meet her property tax dues. Meagher was taken by surprise by the notice. She, together with 120 others residents of Santa Cruz County were participants of California Senior Citizens and Disabled Citizens Property Tax Postponement Program.
