Where and when must I file an application for exemption?

 

Applications for exemption must be filed with the Board of Assessors.  The normal time frame for filing begins July first and ends three months after the actual tax bills are mailed.  Applications for exemption must be filed every year.  

 

Applications are timely filed when (1) received by the assessors on or before the filing deadline, or (2) mailed by United States Postal Service, first class postage prepaid, to Board of Assessors, 1 Avenue A, Turners Falls, MA  01376, on or before the filing deadline, as shown by a postmark made by the United States Postal Service. If an application is not timely filed, the assessors cannot lawfully grant an exemption.

 

Filing an application does not stay the collection of taxes.  To avoid the loss of rights or additional charges, taxes should be paid as assessed.  If there is an overpayment due to the exemption, a refund will be issued.
