An article published in the Howard County section Nov. 6 included incorrect information on the eligibility criteria for the Howard County program that provides property tax cuts for older homeowners.

Homeowners ages 70 or older, with incomes less than $70,000 and assets less than $500,000 excluding their homes, are eligible for a tax cut of up to 25 percent. Retirement savings count as assets under the county law.

The Baltimore Sun regrets the error.
