Residents have been very generous in donating to Sherborn's Tax Aid Fund. To qualify for aid for the fall or spring tax bill, applicants must own and occupy their present property on January 1, 2023 and have been a resident of Sherborn for at least five years. In review of the application, the Committee shall consider the income, assets and expenses of the applicant and the household.
Generally, tax aid will be considered for those age 60 and older or disabled persons. Applicants will generally be considered with income of $55,950 or less for singles and $63,950 or less for households with two or more people, and total assets of less than $650,000. Applicants who have income or assets that exceed but are close to these guidelines are still encouraged to apply. All information provided shall remain confidential with the Tax Aid Committee.
Applications are available in the Sherborn Assessor's Office and must be filed with that office by noon on August 31, 2023 for the fall bill and by noon on February 28, 2024 for the spring tax bill.
Applicants can apply for Fall, Spring, or both. If you have submitted a Fall application and want to be considered for the Spring, you can now complete a simplified Spring Addendum.
