Save My Homestead
Organized by: Constance Vowell
I was self-employed caring for a family member for 6 1/2 years. She lived to be 84 years old and was allowed to stay in her home which helped her to get well faster being in familiar surroundings. I did not receive any payment in return, but did it because she was family. At this persons death, I inherited the home, but there was a real estate tax bill of $20, 790.00 attached. to it. I have recently begun paid training job to go back to work, but it cannot pay the amount that is owed. I am 61 years old and would like to stay in the home as it is a homestead where 3 generations have been raised. The money needs to be raised by August 15, 2015 or the city will take the home. This family member would like for me to have the house, but was discouraged at the tax amount and didn't think anything could be done to repay it. Please help me stay in my home by donating as much as you can to my campaign.
