DRA assiting with Missouri Circuit Breaker Tax Credit

(Jefferson County) The Missouri Property Tax Credit Claim gives credit to certain senior citizens and 100 percent disabled individuals for a portion of the real estate taxes or rent they have paid for the year.

Nancy Pope is the Director of Disability Resource Association (DRA) in Festus. She says DRA will help filling out the proper forms to submit to the state.

Pope mentions the tax credit is to help lower income families.

The actual credit is based on the amount of real estate taxes or rent paid and total taxable and nontaxable household income.

DRA will begin to fill out forms starting in January to submit to the Missouri Department of Revenue.
