Real property taxes; exemption for certain elderly or disabled persons. Increases, and makes uniform statewide, the maximum income and net worth amounts of elderly or disabled persons that localities may use in providing real estate tax exemptions for such persons (i) from $50,000 to $75,000 for annual income, and (ii) from $200,000 to $350,000 for net worth. The net worth cap is also increased by increasing from 10 to 20 the number of acres on which the person's home is located that can be excluded in calculating net worth.
