Senior Tax Relief


Are you a Senior Citizen in need of help paying your property taxes?  Do you own your own home in Saco and have a limited income? You may be eligible for a tax relief program.  Participants will receive a credit towards their Saco property taxes after completing the required number of hours for the program.

Eligible City residents may apply to the City of Saco for tax relief through the Senior Citizen Tax Work- off Program.  Individuals must be 65 years of age prior to April 1, meet income guidelines, own their own home in Saco for a minimum of three years, and reside at that property. Upon acceptance into the program, participants will be assigned to work in a mutually agreeable location within the City.

Many exciting opportunities are available for seniors who wish to earn credit for their property taxes.  Many of our Tax Work-Off program participants are Station Hosts at the Saco Train Station and there are some openings available. Other possible work locations include the Tax Collector’s Office, Clerk’s office, School Department, the Age Friendly Saco Program, and various other offices within City Hall.  There may be additional positions available soon.  Training will be provided upon acceptance into the program.

Applications can be submitted online, you may obtain an application at Saco City Hall, or request one by calling the Program Coordinator, Mary Starr, at (207) 468-0392.  Applications are due on April 15, 2019. If there is space available in the program, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis after the deadline.  After receipt of the application, applicants will be interviewed for any possible positions.

Contact the Program Coordinator, Mary Starr, at (207) 468-0392 with any questions.
