This is the time of year that applications usually become available to apply for Southborough’s Senior Tax Work-Off program.

Today, Southborough Senior Center Director Pam LeFrancois alerted that applications that were due April 7th are now postponed until further notice.

If you aren’t familiar with the work-off program, here’s the description from the most recent Senior Center newsletter:

The Town of Southborough offers a program to senior homeowners (preference given to those with an income of less than $45,000) designed to trade volunteer work hours for town departments with a reduction of their property tax bill of $1000 or $1500. The Senior Center will be offering the program again for FY 2021 and it has been approved for 30 seniors. Each year is treated as a separate program so seniors repeating the program must sign up again. . .

To qualify for the program a senior must be 60 years of age or older when signing up for the program, be a Southborough resident, a homeowner or spouse of a homeowner, and own and occupy the property to which the tax credit will be applied. The applicant must also agree to complete the entire 78.5 or 117.5 hours.

You can click here for more information on the program and here for the application. When the information becomes available on new dates, etc., I’ll be sure to share it.

Good luck with enforcing it at 9/11 field. Every time I drive by there is always a group of people there playing. They’ll park up and down the street.
