The Assessor’s Office can help the residents with the many exemptions that are offered to qualified home owners in our Town.  These exemptions, when applied to your assessment on your primary residence, decrease your assessment and can affect the amount that you pay on your school taxes.  We have these forms in our office and can help you fill out the information needed.
