Abatements and Exemptions

An abatement is a reduction of the tax assessed on your property for the fiscal year. The taxpayer has the formal right to file for an abatement if he/she believes the property is over-assessed, not assessed fairly in comparison to other properties or is not classified correctly.

An application for abatement may only be filed after the issuance of the actual (third quarter) tax bill in January. The deadline to file is February 1st.

Exemptions are available to individuals who meet various requirements in the following categories:

  • Elderly (67 years or older)
  • Blind
  • Widow/Widowers
  • Minor children with a deceased parent
  • Disabled Veterans

These exemptions vary in amounts and are to help ease the tax burden of those that qualify.

Please contact the Assessors Office with any questions or issues you may have. We can be reached at 413-322-5550. We will be happy to assist you.
