> would be a good idea to include that "if it doesn't pertain to one it cant

> the R&R and followed up by periodic meetings.         In regards to the 
> second question I understand there is some tax breaks for individuals who 
> have a set income that is lower than middle class depending on the family 
> size.  I know that I got a break in my property taxes because at one time we 
> had only one income and it was below the set "norm".  I actually had to take 
> documents to the Maricopa Assessors office and fill out some forms.

> I found this in an article on a website

> and it states: "Homeowners in Maricopa County who meet certain income 
> restrictions and valuations limits may have the level of their        
> property taxes frozen or may receive certain exemptions. You might also be 
> interested in knowing that        Arizona does not tax Social Security 
> benefits."  She may want to call and ask Maricopa County or maybe refer her 
> question to DJ.  I am only going by the experience I had and can say I was 
> given a break in my property tax until our income increased.  Hope this 
> helps.  Let me know if I can help any other way.
