VETERANS' PROPERTY TAX WORK-OFF PROGRAM
The Town of Franklin sponsors a Veterans' Property Tax Work-Off Program. Applicants must be Veterans as defined by state law https://www.sec.state.ma.us/cis/cisvet/vetdefin.htm and provide a DD214 or equivalent discharge paperwork. Surviving spouses of Veterans are also eligible. A CORI check is required with application and is updated every three years. Only one member of each household may be participating in a property tax work-off at any given time. Participants must own and occupy the residential property for which real estate taxes are paid and abatement is being sought. For more information, please see attached 2023 program guidelines and application.
VETERANS PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS
Veterans with a service-connected disability may qualify for a partial property tax exemption. Military discharge paperwork and VA benefits letter are required to apply. Surviving spouses may also be eligible. In 2022, the Franklin Town Council voted to match the exemptions mandated by the state. Please see uploaded flyer, Taxpayer's Guide to Local Property Tax Exemptions, and contact the Town Assessor's Office at (508) 520-4920 to see if you meet all eligibility criteria.
