The House Aging and Older Adult Services Committee approved legislation this week, sponsored by Rep. Mike Peifer (R-Pike/Wayne), to authorize municipalities to establish a program that would allow older residents to volunteer in the municipality in exchange for a real property tax credit. Under House Bill 1925, municipalities would be permitted to develop specific guidelines regarding a program, including the acceptance of volunteers. Guidelines would have to include a requirement that individuals seeking to participate undergo a criminal background check. Additionally, a volunteer program may not replace or supplant existing job positions within the municipality. The rate of a real property tax credit for a senior volunteer would be established by the municipality and could not exceed the total amount of real property taxes owed by the volunteer. A real property tax credit received by a volunteer would not be subject to the state Personal Income Tax.
