Inflation & Property Taxes.
Inflation is real and its effects are felt heaviest by the poor and those on fixed incomes. To combat this, I will propose, as many other states do, a property tax exemption for retirees 65 and up in Dane County. I will propose a property tax exemption for the first $150,000 of their house's value for all folks 65 and up on fixed incomes. This tax equity is needed to maintain the standard of living elderly residents have earned with hard work.
