Understanding The "Senior Freeze" Property Tax Reimbursement



Getting your retirement budget in order can be tricky. There are so many possible expenses to worry about - especially if you’re a homeowner. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could guarantee that your property tax payments would stay the same for as long as you lived in your home?

Thankfully, our state legislators want seniors to be able to retire with some added peace of mind. In the late 90s they instituted the “Senior Freeze” property tax reimbursement, which caps your property tax payment the year you qualify, and then reimburses you for any future hikes. The reimbursement also applies to mobile homes and caps their lot fees.

You can live in a community with activities, friends, and medical services just steps away and never have to mow the grass or repair your home again.

Special Safety Alert! Beware of Poisonous Mulch!

It's Spring, and everywhere you look there are articles about gardening. Most of them are full of ideas for a more colorful yard, but I'd like to add a tip that can actually save your life. You'd never expect something as dull as mulching to become a matter of life or death, but it truly can be.


Composted wood mulch is full of benefits for your plants, but the same conditions that nurture nutrients can also result in dangerous chemical reactions. Here's why, and how to prevent these problems.
