Seniors have sacrificed to give us the vibrant and beautiful state we have today. It is our responsibility to offer the opportunity to remain in Utah without undue financial burdens.
34% of senior households in Utah earn less than $30,000 annually.
We need to develop programs to encourage Utah seniors to remain in our state near their families, rather than forcing them to make the financial decision to move to surrounding states with more favorable tax incentives.
Minimize property and state income tax burden for seniors on fixed incomes.
Safeguard Medicare to ensure seniors continue receiving quality health care.
Protect Social Security to ensure Utah seniors have full access to their benefits tax free.
