Personal Tax Exemptions:
This month the Assessor’s office will be mailing 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.
The Assessors attended the 59th annual Assessor’s School at UMASS in Amherst, furthering their education through classes from the Department of Revenue (DOR) and the Massachusetts Association of Assessing Officers (MAAO).
The Massachusetts Department of Revenue, as a quality control measure, requires cities and towns to make a sincere effort to inspect all property over a 9 year cycle to verify and update existing data. Accurate property data is essential for developing uniform valuations of properties.
We’d like to thank all Longmeadow property owners for their patience and cooperation as we completed our community-wide collection (“Full Measure and List”). This process began in April 2013, and was recently completed in July 2014.
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.

Applications must be accompanied with the correct supporting documents to qualify for the tax abatement.
