RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond’s seniors and people living with disabilities could have more time to qualify for tax-relief support thanks to an ordinance proposed by the Stoney administration.

At the September 14 meeting of Richmond City Council, the Stoney administration will introduce an ordinance extending the eligibility deadline for the 2020 Tax Relief for the Elderly and Disabled program to October 30.

In 2020, program eligibility was expanded to include property owners with annual incomes between $50,001 and $60,000. The maximum net worth for eligible applicants was also increased to $350,000.

Visit the Department of Finance page on RVA.gov to see if you or someone you know may qualify for this program.
