Here 's How Towns Are By Vivian Brown Associated Press Writer More communities are providing tax breaks for the over-65s and some are taking another look at long-made retirement plans. For example, does retirement necessitate a move from the long-time home base? Some may look forward anyway to a new community. The old neighborhood may have become too youth-oriented; married children may have moved far away, or older folk may feel that following the sun improves their well-being. On the other hand, many older folk do not wish to leave friends, churches or married children and grandchildren. The new tax break may give them the opportunity to remain where they are.

Other towns are discussing substantial reductions that may be assured no matter how high the taxes go. Either way the mature homeowner might be able to make it. "The only drawback for us may be that we had hoped to travel when our house was sold," one woman explained. "If we stay, we will be glued to the house, barely managing with our Social Security and pension. There will be little travel, if any. And there are all sorts of unknown quantities — automobile repairs or house repairs — that might be needed. In their town there is little for older folk to do, and they do have the urge to move about. But they feel the house market may be shaky and it may be a good time to sell if they want to realize a good price. They would buy a little house somewhere, a jumping-off point in a low-cost area — low heat, no car requirement. They would keep enough invested so they could afford occasional trips after one big, grand one. Another couple had entertained the idea of retiring to Europe where some friends live. But they are being told there is little monetary advantage right now; things are going up slowly but surely. Some countries are out of sight even for the well-heeled. "We will not miss it, because we felt a bit uneasy about going away. If illness strikes I think you'd rather be on familiar territory." That couple was bothered, too, that they wouldn't be able to shake such thoughts even though they'd been told by their children they would be "only a jet ride away." All elderly people must weigh, too, whether they should sit on their estate — small or large. Selling a house and prime furnishings can provide a nest egg. They can get a good tax break if they sell their house and buy another. In that event they can enjoy the travel they want, perhaps even renting out their house on occasions when they plan long trips. One couple weighed the idea of selling an old family house, but their daughter loved it and the family heirlooms so she made them a proposition. "Mortgage the house and I'll meet the payments." That way they would have money to spend and they would still have the house in their lifetime. They had willed it to their daughter. ,"In a way the town tax break has complicated our lives," said one man. "If we didn't have the opportunity to take advantage of such a deal we might have planned to move away, perhaps closer to one of our children. But I guess no matter how you look at it, there is no place like home sweet home."
