Tax Assistance for Seniors

Free Tax Assistance Programs
There are several free programs that provide tax assistance to seniors.  The Vermont Department of Taxes lists several options on their website.

Homestead Declaration
(802) 828-2505.  All residents of Vermont should file a homestead declaration when they file their Vermont income tax each year.  Depending on your income level, the State of Vermont may make a payment on the education portion of your property taxes.  This payment is made directly to the town and may reduce your share of your property taxes.
