Changes to Tax and Rent Refund Program 

Changes are on the way to the Tax and Rent Refund program, thanks to the new state budget. The program has now been replaced with a refundable Property Tax Fairness Credit, which can be claimed on the Maine tax form. The refunds are given to homeowners and renters who meet certain requirements.Because of the changes, the Spectrum Generations agency will no longer be scheduling appointments to help area seniors with the applications.Maine Revenue Services will be doing that.
