There are several programs that offer state and local tax relief - exemptions or deferrals - to qualifying property owners. View a complete description of these programs.
Applications must be filed annually with the Board of Assessors within three months of the mailing of the 3rd Quarter Tax Bill. Application forms for Fiscal Year 2020 must be received in the Assessors’ Office by 4:30 pm on April 1, 2020.
Please note our filing deadlines for Real Estate Property Tax Exemptions.
(Please note that applications for property tax abatement are different from those for exemption or deferral and have different deadlines.)
If you have additional questions, please call the Assessors’ Office at 781-698-4578.
