What is a Statutory Exemption?
A Statutory Exemption reduces a portion of the taxes assessed on a parcel of property. You may not receive more than one personal exemption. However, if you qualify for two or more exemptions, you will receive the exemption that saves you the most money. You may be entitled to a Statutory Exemption for a number of qualifying reasons. For more information contact the Assessor’s office at 617-730-2060 or Tax Assistance Programs.
