Legislation Introduced to Provide Property Tax Relief to WY Seniors

Posted in

Legislation introduced in the House provides for property tax relief to Wyoming senior citizens. House Bill 128 (HB 128), the ‘Senior Property Tax Exemption’ bill, allows qualified residents to lock in the assessed value of their primary residence in the first year they apply for an exemption and continue to pay property tax on that base value for as long as they, or their qualifying spouse, continue to own and reside in the home.

Sponsors of HB 128 include Representatives Richard Tass, Art Washut, Chuck Gray, Mark Jennings, David Miller, Charles Pelkey, and Tim Salazar, along with Senators Lynn Hutchings, Wendy Schuler, and Cheri Steinmetz. The bill passed the House Revenue Committee on January 18, and will be placed in the General File to be considered by the full House.
