The Newton Senior Tax Work-Off Program provides qualified seniors, who work up to 100 hours for the city, a rebate of up to $1000 against their real estate taxes. To qualify you must meet age, income and residency guidelines. For more information, take a look at the Senior Tax Work-Off FAQS sheet below. Please click here for more information from the Assessing Department on the tax assistance programs available.
Currently, most jobs take place in city departments doing clerical tasks and answering phones, but the Newton Department of Senior Services plans to expand the program into the community.
The Senior Tax Work-off Program is a special program offered by the City of Newton to help financially eligible seniors receive a deduction off their annual real estate taxes. If a senior qualifies for this program, they then “work” for one of the City’s departments, “earning” about $10/hour up to 100 hours for a cap of $1000.00 per year (as of 1/1/16).
