Zullo Joins “Brian & Company” to Celebrate Success of First-Time Homebuyer Bill

Posted on March 5, 2024

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Today I joined “Brian and Company” on WTIC Newstalk 1080to discuss House Bill 5167 – “An Act Concerning Property Tax Abatement for First-Time Homebuyers.”  In my proposal, I offer first-time homebuyers a $500 municipal tax abatement who apply for a loan through the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) for up to the first five years of home-ownership.

Last session, my bill found success in the House, but was put on hold in the Senate because of session deadlines. This year, I am happy to announce its recent success in the Planning and Development Committee and look forward to it heading the Governor’s desk later this year.
