Volunteer Firefighter Tax Credit

April 19, 2016

The House has approved legislation to extend an optional municipal property tax relief program for certain volunteer public safety personnel, to retired volunteer firefighters, paramedics, EMTs and other retired public safety volunteers with at least 25 years of service.

This is a terrific tax abatement program to reward volunteers for long-term service to their community. This is not a mandate on towns; this tax credit is at the discretion of each municipality.
