An amendment was made to the TN Constitution that allows your county commission the option to freeze the base amount of property tax paid by seniors 65 years of age and older. The Property Tax Freeze Act lacks majority support from the Loudon County Commission; therefore it failed to pass locally. I support permitting our seniors to take advantage of the freeze, and I would vote YES if you give me the opportunity to serve as your commissioner.
The Tax Freeze would be in addition to the current Tax Relief Program. If Loudon Commission would pass the tax freeze, it would have an impact on seniors whose income is $35,780.00 per year or less. Surrounding counties that have adopted the tax freeze include Anderson, Blount, Roane and Knox.
