Senior Citizen Property Tax Work-Off Program

In 2018 the Town once again has the Senior Citizen Property Tax Work-off Abatement Program available for qualifying Senior Citizens.   The program, formerly referred to as the SHAVE program, provides the opportunity for up to a $1,500 reduction in real estate taxes in FY 2019 for Senior Citizens who are 60 years of age or older, reside in the Town of Ayer, and own and occupy the property that the tax reduction applies to.  Participants can provide up to 136 hours of service to the Town in exchange for a reduction in Real Estate taxes in FY 2019.  Participation is limited and opportunities are filled on a first come first served basis.  Program information applications are available from Kevin Johnston in the Benefits and Payroll Office, 978-772-8248 or, during the business day.
