Presque Isle, Maine — Elderly people across Maine can apply for a property tax freeze when new state law comes into force on August 8.

Senator Trais Stewart of R-Presque Isle drafted a bill on behalf of residents of Aroostook County, who were concerned that property tax increases would make older people with fixed income unable to stay at home.

LD 290A law to stabilize property taxes for individuals aged 65 and over who own a home for at least 10 years passed Congress on May 8. Eligible seniors who apply each year will not pay higher property taxes as long as they live in their home.
