Plainville's Taxation Aid Committee Now Accepting Applications From Seniors Seeking Property Tax Assistance

PLAINVILLE — The Plainville Taxation Aid Committee is pleased to announce that it's now accepting applications from Plainville seniors and/or disabled taxpayers seeking financial assistance with their property tax bills.

Financial assistance will be provided through grants allocated to senior and/or disabled residents from the Plainville Elderly and Disabled Taxation Aid Fund. The fund, approved by town meeting voters, is overseen by the Elderly and Disabled Taxation Aid Committee.

The fund was created to help local residents and its expected grants of $500 or more are awarded annually to the most in-need applicants. Last year, with the assistance of the fund, the Taxation Aid Committee was able to award 11 tax grants totaling $7,100 to Plainville residents.

To qualify for a grant, residents must be 65 or older or disabled as of July 1 of this
year, have an income of no more than $29,000 per year if single or combined $39,000 per year for couples, and must own and occupy a home as his/her primary

Applicants who have income that exceeds but is close to the guidelines are still
encouraged to apply.

Applications are available at the Senior Center (9 School St.), Assessor’s Office and Treasurer’s Office at the Town Hall (190 South St.) or with the Veteran’s Affairs Agent, the latter for veterans only.

The applications must be returned to the assessor’s office by Oct. 16.

For more information regarding the fund, contact the Council on Aging at 508-699-
7384, the assessor’s office at 508-695-3010, Ext. 430, or the treasurer’s office at 508-576-8440.
