Ballot Question

QUESTION 1 - Acceptance of Senior Tax Exemption Shall Section 41 of Chapter 139 of the Acts of 2006 granting real estate property tax exemptions to qualifying seniors be accepted? SUMMARY OF SECTION 41 OF CHAPTER 139 OF THE ACTS OF 2006 (G.L. Ch. 59, § 5 (41C½)) If accepted by majority vote, G.L. Ch. 59, § 5, Clause 41 C½ would provide a new real estate tax exemption for qualifying senior citizens in Revere. The exemption would be equal to five percent of the average assessed value of all residential parcels in the City. The exemption amount available to each property owner would vary from year to year, and could be less than the five hundred dollars ($500.00) currently available to eligible seniors under G.L. Ch. 59, § 5, Clause 41 C. The new exemption would be available to persons who are at least 70 years old on July 1 who meet the statutory requirements for domicile and property ownership. The City Council has the option to increase the exemption up to twenty percent of the average assessed value, and to reduce the age requirement to 65 years old. There would be no asset limit to qualify for this exemption as compared to the current exemption. The income limit for this exemption would be tied to the income limit for single persons who are not heads of households under the "circuit breaker" state income tax credit limit, which is currently higher than the existing exemption allows. The income limit would increase each year by a cost of living adjustment factor. If accepted, the exemption would take effect for fiscal year 2018, which began on July 1, 2018, and would replace the property tax exemption currently available to eligible seniors under Clause 41 C, which provides an exemption of five hundred dollars ($500.00).


PREGUNT A 1 -Aceptaci6n de exenci6n de impuestos para personas mayores i,Debiera aceptarse la Secci6n 41 del Ca!)itulo 139 de las Actas de 2006 que otorga exenciones de impuestos a los propietarios de vivienda de la tercera edad que califiquen? RESUMEN DE LA SECCION 41 DEL CAPiTULO 139 DE LAS ACT AS DEL 2006 (G.L. Ch. 59, § 5 (41C½)) Sise acepta por la mayoria de votos, G.L. Ch. 59, § 5, Clausula 41 C½ otorgaria una nueva exenci6n para los duenos de casa de la tercera edad en Revere que califiquen. La exenci6n seria igual al cinco por ciento del valor promedio de la tasaci6n de todas las parcelas residenciales en la ciudad. El monto disponible de la exenci6n para cada dueiio de propiedad variaria aiio tras aiio, y podria ser de menos de quinientos d61ares ($500.00) actualmente disponible para personas mayores elegibles bajo G.L. Ch. 59, § 5, Clausula 41 C. La nueva exenci6n estaria disponible para person as que tengan 70 aiios para julio lo que cumplan con los requisitos legales de domicilio y de propiedad. El Consejo Municipal tiene la opci6n de aumentar la exenci6n hasta un veinte por ciento del valor promedio tasado, y de reducir el requisito de edad a 65 aiios. No habria limite de bienes para calificar para esta exenci6n comparado a la exenci6n actual. El ingreso limite para esta exenci6n estaria atado al ingreso limite para personas solteras que no son jefes de hogar bajo el credito limite de ingresos del estado "circuit breaker" el cual esta actualmente mas alto de lo que se perrnite en las exenciones en vigencia. El ingreso limite aumentaria cada aiio por causa de los ajustes del costo de vida. Si se acepta, la exenci6n entraria en efecto para el aiio fiscal 2018, el cual comenz6 el 1 de julio de 2018, y remplazaria la exenci6n del impuesto de propiedad actualmente disponibles para los ciudadanos de edad avanzada que sean elegibles bajo la Clausula 41C, la cual provee una exenci6n de quinientos d61ares ($500.00).
