The Town of Berlin’s Senior and Veteran Tax Work-Off program allows seniors and veterans the opportunity to work for the Town and in return will receive a reduction in property taxes each fiscal year worked, based on the total number of hours worked at the Massachusetts minimum wage rate. (Rate as of 1/01/2016 is $10.00, as of 1/1/2017 is $11.00). This program is in addition to other tax abatements and property tax exemptions for which senior and veteran tax payers may be eligible under other statues. Seniors and Veterans must own and occupy the residence for which property taxes are paid and for which credit is being sought.
Completed applications should be sent to:
