Today I got the shock of my life when I heard from my Mothers tax assessor. I take care of my Mother full time and we have been saved by the A&A benefit. Now that it has had small increases added to it, she doesn't qualify for a tax break on her Property taxes (She has a life estate on her house) Now she has to pay $6000 a year in taxes which is more than half of her benefit. She has zero assets and has severe alz. I dealt with the town and he says "income is income." I called the State also and they agreed. We live in nh. He said he didn't care if medicaid, or any other program doesn't consider it income, they are Federal and he is State. IF anyone has any info or loopholes I would surely appreciate it.
