Brookfield Senior Tax Abatement Committee recommends changes

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.
