An exemption is a release from the obligation of having to pay taxes on all or part of a parcel of real property. Personal exemptions are a reduction in taxes due to a particular personal circumstance and qualifications set forth in the Massachusetts General Laws. The burden is on the applicant to show that he or she falls within the expressed terms of the exemption provision.
The deadline to file for a personal exemption is April 1, 2021. If we receive your application by November 15, 2020, the exemption will be split and shown as a credit on your 3rd and 4th quarter tax bills.
Exemptions are granted for 1 year only. An application must be filed each year.
