Homestead Exemption & Veteran Property Tax Exemption applications must be filed at the town tax assessor's office on or before April 1st to qualify for the following tax year. If you already have these exemptions, you do not need to apply again, unless you have changed any of the qualifying criteria since you originally applied.
The statutes provide that a property owner who believes his local property valuation is excessive must seek relief through a written request to the local assessors, made within 185 days after the date the tax was committed to the tax collector (which is usually shortly before the tax bill is mailed) stating the abatement requested, and the reasons for requesting the abatement. Attached below is the abatement request form:
