Residents of the City of Alexandria who are either 65 years of age or older or permanently and totally disabled, or become such during the current calendar year, may be eligible for the City's Real Estate Tax Relief Program for Elderly and Disabled Persons. Tax relief may be prorated for persons who turn 65 or who become disabled during the year. Applications for Real Estate tax relief are due by April 15 each year.

"To qualify for a full tax exemption in the current year, a household's gross combined income may not have exceeded $40,000 in the prior year."

And how many people do you know in Old Town surviving on $40,000 a year?

Why are we talking about Old Town? Also, how many very-low-income people own their own home in Old Town?

You're still missing the point. If you make 60K (which is poverty in DC) you are inelgible.

Your assertion is incorrect.

Income Requirements:

The total combined household gross income of the applicant and his/her spouse shall not have exceeded $100,000 for the calendar year.
Total combined gross household income includes the income of the applicant and, if living in the home, the applicant's spouse, as well as that of any other owners, and any income in excess of $10,000 per year for other relatives of the applicant or spouse living in the home.
To qualify for a full tax exemption in the current year, a household's gross combined income may not have exceeded $40,000 in the prior year.
To qualify for a partial exemption equal to 50 percent of the taxes owed for the current year, a household’s gross combined income may not have exceeded $55,000 in the prior year.
To qualify for a partial exemption equal to 25 percent of the taxes owed for the current year, a household’s gross combined income may not have exceeded $72,000 in the prior year.
Taxes over the maximum exemption may be deferred for qualifying applicants, subject to repayment with interest upon conveyance or demise of the owner.
Qualifying elderly and disabled applicants with gross income over $72,000 but not in excess of $100,000 may defer their taxes, also subject to repayment with interest. An exemption does not apply for this category.
Only deferred taxes need to be repaid. Exempted taxes do not need to be repaid.

What I do not understand is it looks like Amy Jackson is going to go for Mayor, she would have been an easy pick for so many if she had just voted no last week.
