As a senior and a widow who's husband was sick for 17 yr before passing away I struggle just to keep my house. I called Dearborn Co. and was told since my income was low I would be eligible for a break on Real Estate Tax. I take my Fed Tax form to show my income which I'm low enough I don't even have to file and I'm told my house is worth to much for my deduction. I wasn't told the 1st time that the value of my house had anything to do with it. The lady said it had to be worth less than $184,ooo and the last appraisal was $184,200. How do we as seniors manage to keep our homes when every bill we have keeps going up???
