NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk tax officials will host a Senior Tax Relief Workshop from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 13, in the Community Room of Norwalk City Hall.
Norwalk Tax Assessor Michael Stewart invites all Norwalk property owners 65 or older to attend. Residents will be able to ask questions and learn if they qualify for city tax relief programs.
Volunteers from the Norwalk Senior Center will be on hand to help with applications.
As a bonus, the first 300 Seniors through the door will receive five free LED light bulbs.
“We want to ensure we do everything possible to help our seniors live with the dignity and respect to which they are entitled,” said Mayor Harry Rilling in a press release announcing the workshop.
Workshop organizer and Councilman John Kydes (D-District C) stressed the importance of getting the word out about the Senior Tax Relief Program.
“After talking to folks, I knew that more could be done to get the word out” about the program, he said in the release. “With the support of our sponsors, city staff, Mayor Rilling and the Norwalk Senior Center, I’m optimistic that we will have a good turnout next Saturday.”
Representatives from the Mayor’s Energy and Environment Task Force, Eversource, New England Smart Energy, Santa Energy and Direct Energy Solar will be available to provide residents with information on how to reduce energy costs.
