Hingham’s 2019 Annual Town Meeting approved a new “Senior Means-Tested Tax Exemption” for Hingham seniors who meet certain income and asset criteria. The goal of the new tax exemption is to provide targeted property tax relief to older homeowners and help them continue to be able to afford to live in Hingham.
This is the second year the Town is offering this new property tax exemption to seniors. The maximum exemption amount for FY24 is $1,200. If you’re eligible, the credit will be applied to the property tax bill that you receive in December 2023.
Applications are due to the Assessor’s Office by September 1, 2023.
All inquiries and submitted applications will remain confidential.
