WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport Assessor Paul Friia is reminding residents that the Assessor’s Office and the Human Services Department are continuing to take applications for the state and local tax relief programs.

The programs are open to homeowners who are totally disabled or who have reached the age of 65 by the date of application.

Westport’s local program provides qualified homeowners either a tax credit with a maximum income level of $55,000 and/or a tax deferral with a maximum income level of $75,000.

Qualified homeowners with incomes of $75,000 to $100,000 are able to defer tax increase from the previous year only.
