If you live in Newton and are looking to give back to the community and save some money or your taxes you should take a look at the link below. This link will take you to website for the Newton Senior Tax Work-Off Program. This program provides qualified seniors, who work up to 125 hours for the city, a rebate of up to $1000 against their real estate taxes.
Even if you are not a senior, you may be able to help a friend or loved one. The program has been recently expanded to allow a ‘proxy’ to work on behalf of a senior that qualifies. The tax rebate earned would go to the senior’s real estate taxes. For more information click the link below, or contact Lynn Feinman at the Department of Senior Services (617)796-1675.
