Property Tax Freeze Act for Qualifying Senior Citizens

The Home Rule Charter adopts the Property Freeze Act, Tenn_Code_Ann_67-5-705 for qualifying citizens 65 or older.
As of 2105 this law has not been adopted by Lincoln County.

Approving the charter would freeze the property tax on principal residence for qualifying seniors not allowing any increases in the tax.

Probably there are some seniors in Lincoln County that have to do without food or medicine to pay their property tax.
