Applications are now being accepted for both the Senior & Veteran Real Estate Tax Abatement Programs. Both programs match municipal volunteer opportunities in the Town with eligible senior citizens and/or veterans who are qualified and able to volunteer their services in exchange for a reduction in their real estate tax bills. Program participants may work in a variety of jobs for the Town. New this year, in order to provide greater tax relief opportunities to our residents, we have expanded abatement options through these programs. Residents can now either receive a $1000 reduction in their tax bill in exchange for 78.5 hours of service or $500 off if they complete 39.5 hours. Applications are available at the Council on Aging and the Town Administrator’s office in Town Hall and are due December 13, 2019.
