Senior Citizens Volunteer/Tax Liability Reduction Program 2017

The Senior Citizen Volunteer Service/Tax Liability Reduction Program allows Seniors (60 and older), to volunteer their services in exchange for a reduction in their property tax bill. Participants may earn a maximum reduction of $750.00 per fiscal year based on a rate per hour of service that cannot exceed the Commonwealth's minimum wage. 


  • You must be a tax payer and 60 years of age or older during the tax year when volunteering is completed and the tax reduction is credited
  • You must have an ownership interest and reside in the property year round
  • Total reduction will not exceed $750.00

If you are interested in this program, applications can be picked up beginning on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at the Senior Center. Applications will be accepted until the close of business on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.

Winners will be selected by lottery and notified.
