Program is less ‘taxing’ for seniors

Marlborough – Senior citizens living on fixed incomes often have difficulty affording ever-increasing property tax bills. To help senior residents of the city, Marlborough has instituted the state’s Senior Citizen Property Tax Work-off Abatement Program, which allows seniors to offset a portion of their tax bills by up to $1,000 by performing volunteer work.

To qualify, the participant (who must be at least 60 years old and a five-year city resident) must have an annual income of less than $52,000 for a single filer; $65,000 for the head of a household; or $78,000 when filing married/jointly.
