Albany - Many property owners are concerned about how much their taxes might go up this year. Some senior citizens are worried they won't be able to afford the taxes.

Tuesday night (October 9th), a tax information session will be held at First Baptist Church Putney on Antioch Road.

Citizens will be given details on possible tax exemptions, like a property tax freeze or senior tax exemption. Petitions will also be circulated for people to sign. Those will be passed on to city and county commissioners.

"Between the senior tax exemption and the value freeze exemption," said Bob Rehberg, "people will not be taxed out of their homes. It's happening now, but we're going to cut that out."

The meeting starts at 7 PM at the First Baptist Church of Putney. If you can't make it, a website with information and electronic petitions has also been set up.  Check it out by clicking here.
