John Romaker recently had the honor of witnessing Governor Inslee sign into law sweeping changes to existing legislation to expand access to tax relief measures for thousands more seniors, disabled persons and veterans. Assessors statewide joined together to shepherd statutory changes to adjust income limits for qualifying for tax relief. Median income and inflation, by county, will be factors used to recalibrate income thresholds to better track with local economic conditions. Plus, eligibility for veterans with service-connected disabilities has been expanded. The bill also provides for future online filing options for program participants.
