Tax Exemptions

A tax exemption is a discharge from the obligation to pay all or a portion of a tax. Exemptions are conferred by the Legislature on particular categories of persons or property. Applications must be filed annually with the local assessors. Filing an application does not entitle the applicant to a delay in tax payment. Certain Exemptions may qualify you for a reduction on your water and sewer bill. Contact the Department of Public Works at 781-897-5980 for further Information.
