Are exemptions and assistance programs available to property owners to help defray the amount of taxes due?

Yes. Through the Assessor’s Office you may apply for the Homestead exemption, the blind exemption, and the veteran’s exemption. These programs reduce the assessed value of your property, resulting in a tax savings to you. For more information, contact the Assessor’s Office at 207-874-8486.


In addition, the State of Maine administers a Property Tax Fairness Credit , which is income based. For more information, call 207-626-8475. For applications, call 207-624-7894, or download by going online.
