Q. Now that the ANCHOR program is out, will this be replacing the Senior Freeze? I’ve been getting the Senior Freeze for about 10 years.

A. Many people have had questions about the new ANCHOR property tax program.

More residents will be eligible for ANCHOR compared to the Homestead Rebate, which ANCHOR is replacing.

But you’re asking about the Senior Freeze, another program that helps residents reduce their property tax bill.

That program remains, even with the introduction of ANCHOR.

One of the main differences is that the Freeze is only for seniors and disabled persons who meet the eligibility requirements.

The deadline for the Senior Freeze is Oct. 31.
