Elderly, Veterans, and Other Statutory Exemptions
Massachusetts law provides a variety of tax exemptions for certain qualifying taxpayers. Requirements are very specific. Applications must be filed annually with the assessors on or before December 15 or 3 months after the actual tax bills are mailed, whichever is later. Filing an application does not entitle the applicant to a delay in tax payment. All eligibility requirements must be met as of July 1 of the tax year.
Because of the number and complexity of exemptions, the table below is intended only to give you an idea of what is available. If you have the slightest suspicion you may be eligible, call the Assessor's Office to discuss the details or to request the appropriate brochure. Note the income restrictions; asset limits do not include the value of owner occupied houses. Please note there are additional qualifications to those indicated.
For more detailed information please contact the staff of the Assessor's Office at 413-253-7129.
