Boston Property Tax Abatement Program
1 min read

How can this program help me?

This program may give you a property tax abatement (reduction) if you think the assessed (taxable) value of your home was set too high. The assessed value is the dollar amount used to decide how much you will have to pay in property taxes. You can get help from this program if you own a home in the City of Boston and it is where you live full-time.

How do I get help?

To find out how to apply for this benefit, contact the Taxpayer Referral & Assistance Center.
