Senior Citizen Property Tax Work-Off Program

In 2016 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 $1,000 reduction in real estate taxes in FY 2017 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 100 hours of service to the Town in exchange for a reduction in personal property taxes in FY 2017.  Participation is limited and opportunities are filled on a first come first served basis.

For more information, Contact Kevin Johnston in the Benefits and Payroll Office at 978-772-8248 or, during the business day.
