New 467 Q and A

The following Q and A has been added to Law change regarding seniors exemption.

Q. If a municipality has opted to allow unreimbursed medical and prescription drug expenses to be deducted from income for purposes of the 467 exemption, is there a particular year of medical expenses that should be deducted?

A. Our opinion is that any deductions from income allowed by the statute—including unreimbursed medical expenses where a municipality has opted to allow that deduction—should have occurred in the income tax year required for the application. See the link above for details.
