Campaign Contributions – Who’s Got Your Back?
It’s no surprise that Councilmember Carol Fukunaga deferred Bill 16, which would have protected our hotel rooms and our good, local jobs. View the full reports from the State of Hawaii Campaign Spending Commission: http://1.usa.gov/UUTv2w and http://1.usa.gov/WUNmFM
Property Tax Exemption for Low-Income Seniors
Carol Fukunaga has claimed that she did not vote to raise property taxes on elderly homeowners. Unfortunately, this is just not true. Let us explain how this tax increase on low-income elderly homeowners works:
Currently, for every house that is occupied by the owner as their principal residence, there is a home exemption for property tax of up to the first $80,000 of value of the house. That means the taxes are only charged on the value above $80,000. At age 65, that exemption goes up to $120,000.
It used to be that the for low-income residents who applied, the exemption would increase again to $140,000 at age 75, $160,000 at age 80, $180,000 at age 85 and $200,000 from age 90 on.
In 2013, the Honolulu City Council passed Bill 40 (which became Ordinance 13-32). Council voted to end all of the exemptions over the $120,000, except for people who applied for them prior to September 30, 2013. Even for those people, the exemption will end within 5 years unless they were age 90 or above. Carol Fukunaga voted three times to pass this bill through.
Here is the language of the ordinance.
