again, this isn't related to your property taxes - it's simply a component of your income taxes filing - so in answer to your original question, no you did not hear right...

my comment about naivete was more along the lines of your elected representatives do/push/vote/legislate all kinds of shit without a vote of the people.

as for my commentary on it, I don't live in a baller house, but I have never qualified for any portion of the above said credit. in a nutshell it was theoretically there for folks that were "house rich" to help them keep a house if/when their property taxes crossed a certain threshold of their income. with the passage of proposal A, and the PRE exemption from school operating property tax millages, the cap on assessments etc. a larger and larger percent of people didn't qualify for substantive credits anyway.
