CONCORD—Today, the New Hampshire Senate voted 24-0 in favor of SB 243-FN, to increase the income limitations for the low- and moderate-income homeowners property tax relief program. Adjustments to the limitations would be based on the consumer price index.
Senator Morgan (D-Brentwood), prime sponsor of SB 243, released the following statement after the vote:
“As the cost of living in New Hampshire has continually increased, tax relief limits have remained stagnant. It is time for New Hampshire to make adjustments to the low- and moderate-income homeowners property tax relief program to ensure that all families who truly need this relief are included. SB 243-FN supports hardworking Granite Staters and will help put an end to the great migration of our disappearing working class. It’s encouraging to see the Senate pass this legislation and ensure a brighter future for New Hampshire’s working-class families.”
