BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota's Tax Department is spending about $15,000 to promote a program that gives more tax relief to seniors and people with disabilities.
Tax Commissioner Cory Fong says media advertising will begin this week notifying North Dakota residents on changes to the homestead tax credit program.
He says about 237,000 brochures also are being mailed.
North Dakota's homestead tax credit is now available for any homeowner who is disabled, or for North Dakota residents 65 years old or older who make less than $42,000 annually.
The Legislature this year bumped the annual earning limit from $26,000 and raised the value of assets allowed under the program from $75,000 to $500,000.
Renters who meet certain income criteria also are eligible for a partial refund on the rent they pay.
