Established in 1981, the tax work-off program is a method for senior citizens to work off a portion of their property tax. Those accepted into the program are placed in temporary jobs in Larimer County departments. The program was developed to address the challenge for seniors on fixed incomes to afford the higher property taxes that rising housing costs incur.
