The Town of South Hadley and the South Hadley Senior Center are seeking input from residents on a potential Senior Tax Work- Off Program.
South Hadley Town Meeting has not adopted Mass General Law Chapter 59, Section 5k to allow for such a program yet. The program would potentially appear on a fall special town meeting or 2024 South Hadley annual town meeting warrant.
The program, if approved by South Hadley Town Meeting members, would allow income-eligible seniors to earn up to a $1,500 abatement off their property taxes in exchange for volunteering in municipal departments and entities. The potential program would be open to seniors aged 60 and older, who own property in and pay real estate taxes to the Town of South Hadley.
Residents can send feedback on whether the town should move forward with a Senior Tax Work-Off Program to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
