Put seniors to work to pay their taxes!

Greenburgh, New York has an innovative program to help seniors who are behind on their taxes catch up: Put em' to work! According to the Associated Press:

The town is pushing a program that would let seniors work part-time, for $7 an hour, to help pay off some of their property taxes.

"People shouldn't have to sell their house, move away to a place with less taxes, leave behind their family and friends," said Town Supervisor Paul Feiner.

His ambitious, innovative plans include retired teachers helping with tutoring, retired accountants helping at Town Hall, and other jobs for those with less specialized training. It's a great program because it allows the elderly to pay their taxes without having to be a burden to younger generations.

In addition, the programs have been a blessing for some retirees, who have found fulfillment in their new jobs. Low-impact, part-time work could be the future of retired life in America. It will keep people active, contributing to society and, if done right, improve their overall quality of life. Colorado, Massachusetts, South Carolina and other states have similar programs, and I think it could go national pretty quickly. With the future of Social Security in doubt, part-time work may be a good way to supplement the incomes of retirees.
