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.
