This article examines the Wisconsin Old Aged Homestead property tax relief program. Various types of property tax relief programs for special groups of citizens have been increasingly utilized by states for some time. The relief program was passed in 1964, revised in 1966 and currently provides tax relief of over 6.5 million dollars to 70,000 low income elderly families owning or renting their homes. The relief program was designed to relieve the inordinate part of the residential property tax burdens of homeowners and renters who are 65 years of age or older.
