What is the Senior Property Tax Work Program?

The program offers senior homeowners an opportunity to trade volunteer work hours for town departments with a reduction of their property tax bill of up to $1500.

Seniors have worked at the Senior Center, Library, Assessor's Office, Building Department, Board of Health, Town Clerk's Office, Selectmen's Office, DPW, and in various schools. Example include: data entry, receptionist at town hall, office assistant at the Board of Health, assisting in classrooms at the schools, and building maintenance. We will also try to match any special areas of expertise that a senior might bring to the appropriate department.

To qualify for the program a senior must be 60 years of age or older when signing up for the program, be a Southborough resident, a homeowner or spouse of a homeowner, and own and occupy the property to which the tax credit will be applied. Applicants can complete the entire 70 hours of work for a $1000 credit or 105 hours of work for a $1500 credit. Hours must be completed by March 1, 2024.

*No applications will be accepted in advance of April 4th

We urge all interested seniors to apply regardless of income; if we have less than 30 applicants the income requirement will be waived. Those who have household incomes under $45,000 will be considered first.
