Abatement Procedures

Taxpayers have 30 days from the date of the actual bill, usually the first due date of the semiannual billing (about Nov. 1st to Dec. 1st) to file an abatement application (State Tax Form 128). Your application must be filed with the Board of Assessors on or before the due date of the first installment payment of the actual tax bill. This deadline cannot be extended or waived. Payment of the first installment of the tax bill is due, as filing an abatement application does not stay the collection of your taxes. Please see page 2 of State Tax Form 128 for additional information and instructions.
