The City of Boston provides a nice discount on your property tax if you owner occupy your property

Click here to apply or find out if you qualify.

For Fiscal Year 2017, the residential exemption saves qualified Boston homeowners up to $2,432.91 on their tax bill. The Taxpayer Referral and Assistance Center has three months from the date you filed your application to make a decision. Just because you file an application, that doesn’t mean you can postpone paying your taxes. You still need to pay your property taxes each quarter. If your residential exemption application is approved, the Collector Treasurer will credit you later in the fiscal year.
