FY 2017 Tax Billing and the Residential Exemption

Residents who have previously qualified for a Residential Exemption will see the exemption applied to the 2nd half (Spring 2017) tax bill if so adopted by the Selectmen at the October 24, 2016 Tax Classification Hearing. The first half tax bill, due November 1, 2016 is a preliminary or estimated tax bill. Preliminary tax bills cannot have exemptions or abatements attached to them as a matter of law. The Assessors are working on proposed changes for future tax bills designed to ensure the October tax bill will have the Residential Exemption applied. Adoption of a Residential Exemption must be voted on annually by the Selectmen. If the Selectmen vote to keep the Residential Exemption, then recipients of the Exemption in FY 2016 will automatically qualify for FY 2017 provided that your qualifying information is the same. If you are a domiciled resident but are not currently receiving the Residential Exemption, you may file an application after you receive your Spring tax bill. Please provide all the information requested to ensure application approval.
