(Washington, DC) – The District of Columbia Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) announced today that it will host a series of workshops in October to educate senior residents about real property tax relief programs that are available to reduce their tax liability. The workshops, which are supported by the Office on Aging, will take place at various senior wellness centers across the city.
