    I just Faxed everyone in Congress from PA about this issue. Its free you just send an email that will convert to a fax. Its more effective when you use up their paper. Emails don't get read. I urge everyone to do it, lets make this nation wide!

      From the Charleston County Citizen's Guide:

      The first $50,000 of the value of an owner-occupied residence is exempt for all legal residents of South Carolina that have resided in the state for at least one year on or before December 31 of the year prior to exemption and are one of the following:
      • $ 65 on or before December 31, preceding the tax year in which you wish to claim exemption
      • $ certified totally and permanently disabled by State or Federal agency
      • $ legally blind
      • $ at least 50 years of age when your spouse who was eligible for exemption died
      ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

        Does anyone know what qualifies as permanently and totally disabled?

            Susan, I would say I am & have been for 23 years, barring a cure for SCI.

              Even if we are employed and not eligible for SSI or SSDI?

                  LOL, Chris, not a snowball's chance in Florida that he would. Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Taxes...errr..Lakes, has the same deal, though. I was surprised. I doubt I'm eligible, though, darn it.

                    Well, I knew New Jersey wouldn't give much, if anything....if there is a land of "10,000 taxes", it's NJ.
                    Following is a response I received regarding this issue for New Jersey;

                    "New Jersey resident homeowners, age 65 or older or permanently and totally disabled, or their unmarried surviving spouses may qualify for an annual deduction of up to $250 from real property taxes on their dwelling house. To qualify for the deduction the following conditions must be met:



                    · Must be legal resident of New Jersey for one year immediately prior to October 1 of the year before the year the deduction is claimed; and



                    · Must own the home for which the deduction is claimed and reside there as your principal or primary residence; and



                    · Annual income (exclusive of Social Security or, with limitations, similar government pension, disability or retirement programs) does not exceed $10,000 during the year for which the deduction is granted.



                    The maximum benefit amount that is excludable for the tax year 2005 is $23,320. This amount is changed annually to reflect a cost of living adjustment.



                    New Jersey law does not provide a property tax exemption based on particular disabilities. However, by law, property tax exemptions are available to certain nonprofit educational, religious, charitable, veteran, firefighter, youth and historic organizations which benefit the general public and which meet stringent eligibility criteria. The brochure “New Jersey Property Tax Benefits” is available on the New Jersey Division of Taxation, Local Property Tax website at http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxa...t/localtax.htm which contains information about New Jersey’s property tax relief programs such as the Property Tax Reimbursement(Tax Freeze); the Fair Rebate; the Property Tax Deduction/Credit; the Veteran’s Property Tax Deduction and the Disabled Veteran’s Exemption and contact numbers of the various programs.

                    Now, I ask you, how could you even afford to own a home and income only less than $10,000 ?????

                    I guess it's better than nothing

                      I just sent about 10 stamped letters to different dept.s in the PA gov't.

                      Including the Senators & House.

                      Everyone needs to alert them & it should be law in every state.

                        There are loans from HUD & USDA Rural Development available to buy a home at 1%.

                        Plus Disabled people can inherit homes from family etc. Then they will have to sell it because they can afford property taxes.

                          I just found this out, this Bill could increase the tax rebate. It hasn't reach the Senate floor yet.

                          "There is a provision in law providing for a partial property tax rebate for disabled persons. There is also a bill to increase that rebate. We will keep your concerns in mind when these bills reach the senate floor for consideration."

                            Norm excellent work!

                            Thank you for jumping into this.

                            It is vital information.

                            Could you please link any info on HUD
                            loans. Do they pertain more to the area and not neccessarily
                            the disabled buyer? Would loans to the disabled
                            be more state than federally governed?

                            Thanks again.

                            Joe
                            And the truth shall set you free.

                              I was directed more locally to section 8. I want to move to Delaware Co. so this is who I have to contact. This is an example. http://www.dcha1.org/index_files/page0050.htm

                              You would need to find similar in a NJ County. I'm still learning so it could be different. But I notice HUD seems to put out links locally. Start here for NJ, http://www.hud.gov/local/index.cfm?state=nj

                                Be very careful with this. In my county in Washington state, this is only a deferral. I've seen the same elsewhere, also income caps.
