HELP OUR SENIORS WITH SOME TAX RELIEF

  • Many Seniors and residents with disabilities in Leverett struggle to pay their taxes and want to be able to continue to make Leverett their home.
  • The Leverett Tax Relief Committee distributes funds yearly to income eligible residents: Seniors 60 and over, as well as qualified individuals with disabilities.
  • The Committee is now funded exclusively by donations from Leverett residents. Donations are needed.
  • 1,100 (approximately) Tax Bills are sent out in the Town.
  • What if 1,000 of Leverett property owners contributed $5.00 a year? Or more?
  • 1,000 X $5.00+ = $5,000+
  • The Tax Relief Committee just awarded over $5,000 to 11 eligible applicants for 2017.
  • Amounts varied between just $250 to $750 depending on need. Not much to defray the total bill!
  • Now we need to replenish the Tax Relief fund so we can help again next year.
  • YOU CAN HELP!!!
  • Help by contributing to the Tax Relief Fund - $5.00 or more. Check the box on the Real Estate bill or your Excise Tax Bill and fill in the amount of your contribution.
  • Automatic Deduction: Go online and add your automatic contribution.
  • Send a check at any time: Payable to Town of Levertt Tax Relief and get it to our Treasurer/Collector at Town Hall.
