The Department of Tax and Revenue on the form it sends to seniors who own real property shall add a certification that would say if the individual or couple had a combined income of less than a stated amount and is therefore not required to file an income tax return and no one else lives in their home, they are entitled to a credit set forth in the above referenced sections. The low income senior citizen shall send the certificate to the Department of Tax and Revenue in lieu of a tax return and be entitled to the benefits of the credits set forth in §11-21-21 and §11-21-23 of this code.
