Preventing Tax Foreclosures for Older Adults: Accessing Tax Relief Options

September 26, 2023

This National Center on Law & Elder Rights training will focus on one of the most important ways to prevent tax foreclosure: ensuring that low-income and older homeowners have access to all available exemptions and discounts. Many older adults who are at risk of tax foreclosure have not taken advantage of all the existing tax relief options available to them. Heirs who have inherited a family home are even less likely to have obtained these benefits. This webinar will provide an overview of the available options, including abatements and exemptions, and strategies to ensure your client is maximizing all available benefits to avoid the risk of losing their home.

After the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Tyler v. Hennepin County, some states will need to revise their property tax foreclosure process. In this webinar, presenters will also briefly describe the impact of this decision and what may come next.
