The Senior Tax Work-Off Program allows eligible seniors to work in Town Departments and receive in exchange an abatement on their property taxes. Work is paid at the minimum wage and the "wages" earned are applied to property taxes as an abatement.
You may be eligible if you:
Are 60 years of age or older
Possess skills needed by Town Departments
Own the property for which taxes are paid
Sign up annually
Pass a CORI
If you had changes to your Deed, such as establishing a Trust, contact the Office of the Assessors to ensure that you still qualify. Please do this before completing your enrollment paperwork.
Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Enrollment will begin July 1, 2023 for the new year. Participants who participated in FY 2023 will receive an email/direct mail of program enrollment paperwork which needs to be completed to be eligible to participate in FY 2024's program. The paperwork will also be posted to the Department's website.
