Senior Citizen Property Tax Work-Off Program
The Town of Wenham accepted MGL Chapter 59 Section 5K several years ago and the Board of Selectmen recently formalized the Town's policies regarding this Senior Citizen Property Tax Work-Off Program. This program offers Wenham seniors aged 60+ the opportunity to earn an abatement on their real estate property tax bill. The hourly wage is $9.00 and the maximum annual abatement cannot exceed $750..
The positions available through this program are in various departments throughout the Town. Job placements will likely be made with the Town Clerk’s Office, Town Finance Office, Town Permitting Office, Council on Aging, and the Hamilton Wenham Regional Library. Attempts will be made to match the placement with the applicant’s interests and qualifications.
Details regarding eligibility criteria as well as the application and placement process can be found here. Please reach out to our COA Director, Jim Reynolds, at 978-468-5529 if you are interested in participating or have any questions about the program.
