I read the article on senior tax break here in Juneau and would like to express my opinion.
My wife and I have lived here for over fifty years and paid our share of taxes, enough to deserve a break.
I think a fair and equitable way to determine eligibility would be to base it on age and longevity. If you are 65 years old and have lived 10 years consecutive years as a resident of Juneau, you qualify. This would eliminate nonresidents and new arrivals who might only be here for a short time, causing much paper work for city employees.
