Veterans Services FY2016 Property Tax Credit Program
Wayland has adopted Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 59, Section 5N, establishing a program whereby eligible veterans may acquire up to $500 in property tax credit. To be eligible, an individual must be a veteran and must reside in the property for which the tax credit is sought.

Participants will be credited service time at the State’s current minimum wage rate of $9 per hour.  The amount of the total credit earned will be applied as abatement to the participant’s annual property tax bill.

The Veterans’ Agent will certify initial eligibility. Participants must agree to a CORI check (criminal background) prior to placement.

Applications for participation in the FY 16 program will be accepted beginning on Monday, June 30, 2015.  Applications and guidelines are available in the Assessing Office, Selectmen’s Office and online here. Applications may be submitted to the Assessing Office.
