The cooler weather is approaching, and the leaves will start to fall. This makes me think that a new season of Tax Work-Off will be right around the corner. This program is very helpful to so many town departments and for the person who is volunteering. When you volunteer for the required number of hours, you will receive close to $1000.00 off of your real estate tax bill. Information on when the applications for this program will be available will be in the October newsletter!
