A revenue neutral way of increasing property tax relief to seniors who need it most would be to put existing tax relief on a sliding scale based on age. Currently, when you go from age 64 to age 65 you get a huge windfall in the form of a 50% reduction in taxes. Instead, how about something like a 25% relief from age 65-70, 50% from 70-75, 75% from 75-80 and 90% relief above age 80. You could figure out the actual age bands to use based on actuarial tables so that the change was revenue neutral.
