Nov. 1 deadline for senior tax program

Continue reading below

Residents age 60 and over have until Nov. 1 to submit applications for the Senior Tax Work Off Program, which enables senior citizens to “work off” a portion of their taxes by volunteering during the year. The maximum amount of an abatement of taxes is $750, town officials said. And only one senior work-off abatement is allowed per household for those 60 and older as of Jan. 1. Background checks are carried out before any applicant is placed in a volunteer position, which range from clerical, computer, and kitchen and serving work to reception, accounting, building and grounds maintenance, and data base management. For more information, call Andrea Priest at 508-946-2490.
