How can this program help me?

This program can help lower the amount of property taxes you pay if you are a homeowner who is legally blind. It may lower your home’s assessed (estimated) value, up to a limit set by the program. The assessed value is the dollar amount used to decide how much you will have to pay in property taxes.

How do I get help?
