Property Tax Cuts Extended to Elderly

The Monitor reports on some of the good news coming out of Saturday's election - the overwhelming vote for Proposition 1:

"Nearly 30,000 Hidalgo County homeowners are set to receive property tax cuts because of a constitutional amendment that voters overwhelmingly approved this weekend.

Proposition 1, which passed with 87 percent approval statewide and in Hidalgo County during Saturday’s elections, extended property cuts from last year’s statewide reforms to people 65 and older and those considered disabled by the state and federal government."

This should bring some relief to some of our local folks. I'm glad I could help!
