MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) -- The Village of Machesney Park is announcing the TeleCom Tax Rebate program for eligible seniors is accepting applications from July 1 though August 30, 2013.
The TeleCom Rebate program offers rebates on the telecommunications tax portion of telephone bills of up to $25 per household per year for income-eligible residents aged 65 years and over. Residents must provide proof of age, residence, income, and copies of their last 12 paid telephone bills. Applications will be accepted beginning Monday, July 1st through August 30, 2013.
The TeleCom Rebate Program was established five years ago as part of a revenue plan to fix roads throughout the village. The plan included increasing the telecommunications tax from 1% to 6% and dedicating those revenues to road repairs.
