The Orleans Assessing office offers the following statutory real estate property tax exemptions for all qualified residents of Orleans. All exemptions are applied to the 3rd and 4th quarter actual tax bills. The due date for all exemption applications for FY2020 is April 1st, 2020.
These are the current exemptions offered by the town as accepted by the legislative body at annual town meeting. All statutory exemptions are codified in Mass. General Laws under Chapter 59, Section 5. If you see an exemption codified that has not yet been accepted at town meeting, please let the Board of Assessors know about it and we'll try to get it on the warrant for the next town meeting.
