STEP - Senior Tax Exchange Program
The Pulaski Community School District Board of Education recognizes and welcomes the many gifts and talents our senior citizens have to contribute to our school system. To that end, PACE is pleased to sponsor the Senior Tax Exchange Program. Through STEP, senior citizens are given the opportunity to work in the district and apply their earnings toward payment of property taxes.
Any senior citizen 62 years of age or older who receives Social Security and has taxable property within the Pulaski Community School District.
