Franklin, MA: Tax Work Off Program

Tax Work Off Program
Senior homeowners aged 60 and over can obtain property tax relief through the Senior Tax Work Off program. Seniors can take a credit of up to $750 off their real estate taxes by working in town departments where their skills and expertise serve the community. This program greatly benefits the town while providing much needed tax relief to senior citizens. Eighty positions were allotted to this program last year. Senior workers were placed in the Library, Treasurer/Collector’s office, the Recreation Department, the DPW, the Assessors’ office, the Town Clerk’s office, the Senior Center and several schools.
For more information on this program, please contact Bob Fahey at the Senior Center:
