Proposal on ballot would lessen seniors’ tax burden

Sudbury officials are urging residents to head to the polls Tuesday to support a proposal they say would reduce the tax burden on a small number of seniors struggling to stay in their homes.

The plan calls for increasing the tax burden on all residential taxpayers by 0.5 percent, and using the additional revenue to reduce the bills for about 250 low- to moderate-income seniors who pay more than 10 percent of their income on property taxes.
