Sabathani Senior Center to offer assistance in filing Homestead Property Tax / Rent Rebate claims in April

Sabathani Senior Center in collaboration with AARP will offer assistance to community seniors in filing their homestead property tax or renter rebate tax forms.

According to Georgia Marinkov-Omorean, Sabathani Senior Center Program Director, the service will be available to people 50 and older on April 15 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Center, 310 E. 38th St. in Minneapolis, Room 106.  There is no fee for the program but participants must sign-up in advance by calling (612) 821-2306.

“I encourage all seniors to take advantage of the tax rebate program, which will return money to taxpayers,” Marinkov-Omorean said. “Even if an individual has not yet received a property tax statement, we can look it up. Renters should bring their document supplied by their landlord.”
