REAL ESTATE TAX EXEMPTION NOTICE - see attached notice

Tax Exemptions - Do I Qualify?

With the upcoming Fiscal Year 2022 “actual” tax bills being issued the end of December you may need to ask: 
“DO I QUALIFY FOR A REAL ESTATE TAX EXEMPTION?”
While taxes cannot be avoided, some taxpayers may be entitled to partial relief via a “real estate tax exemption.”
Persons who may qualify for exemptions include disabled veterans, blind persons, surviving spouses, and seniors.  There are also tax deferrals for those experiencing a temporary financial hardship.

If you feel you may qualify for any of these exemptions, contact the Barre Assessor’s Office at 978-355-2504 x 103 or at rcarney@townofbarre.com and they will be happy to assist you. Applications must be received no later than April 1, 2022 in order to be applied to the FY22 real estate taxes.
