As part of Boston’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Walsh extended the fiscal year 2020 residential and personal exemption applications deadline. This year’s deadline is Tuesday, June 1, 2020.
The City has a number of tax relief programs for those homeowners who occupy the property as their principal residence. This year, the residential exemption will save taxpayers up to $2,879.79 on their tax bill. Personal exemptions may provide additional tax relief to those qualifying homeowners who are elderly, surviving spouses or minor children of deceased parents, veterans, or certain members of the National Guard.
