Veterans get property-tax workoff program


The town has launched a program that enables veterans to work off a portion of their property taxes. At this month’s Board of Selectmen meeting, where the proposal was unanimously approved, chairman Joe Salvucci explained that the program for veterans is similar to the town’s senior tax workoff program, which allows homeowners age 60 and over to lower their property taxes by working for the town. “Most of it is a copy of the senior workoff program with the exception of if you have a disabled vet, they’re able to have somebody else actually do their time for them, for that benefit.”
