Working It Out

Here's an interesting form of property tax "relief" out of Massachusetts - letting senior citizens work off their property tax bill:

Seniors will earn an hourly rate of $6.75 per hour, for all positions, with a maximum abatement of $750 per fiscal year. The maximum amount of compensated hours work will be 111.11. Seniors will receive a receipt of their earnings credited against their property tax bill. Positions will be offered on the basis of eligibility, qualifications, availability, location and physical limitations. No job will require heavy physical exertion.

When you think you've seen every form of property tax relief, there seems to be something new around the corner.
