The Brookfield Senior Tax Abatement Committee is recommending to town officials that the program cap abated taxes for eligible resident age 75 or older and a one-time partial abatement for seniors earning 3 percent over existing income limits.  Current requirements are that a resident must have lived and paid taxes in Brookfield for the last five years and income must be below $49,420 for a single person and $60,200 for a married couple.  Their home value must also not exceed the median assessed property value for the year.  According to the committee’s report, Brookfield provides a higher abatement on property taxes than almost towns in the area.
