Tax aid grants must be applied for annually and applications are due on October 16. The Committee may request additional information. Notification of the Committee's decisions will be mailed to all applicants by December 1. All decisions of the Committee are final.
The information in your application for assistance will be kept confidential.
You can obtain an application at the Assessor's Office or Treasurer's Office in Town Hall, at the Senior Center or from the Veterans Affairs agent (veterans only).
