Personal Tax Exemptions:

In October the Assessor’s office mailed out applications for fiscal year 2015 personal exemptions. Those eligible for this exemption include veterans with disabilities, low-income elderly, and the blind. Those taxpayers who have applied and qualified in prior years will automatically receive applications, which are due at the end of March 2015. If you would like to learn if you qualify, please click here or see the applications below for further details.

Motor Vehicle Excise Tax Abatements:

Did you know that you pay an excise tax on your vehicle each year for the entire calendar year? And if you transfer ownership of the vehicle and either cancel or transfer the plates to another car, you may be entitled to an abatement (refund) of the balance of the tax paid for the year through December? Also, active military personnel stationed in MA whose domicile is in another state are exempt from MA excise tax.
To learn more about your options, click here. And if you need an application to apply for the abatement, click here. Applications must be accompanied with the correct supporting documents to qualify for the tax abatement.
