On September 26, 2020 the town of Eastham voted to accept the provision of Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 60, Section 3D, which allows the town to designate a place on the tax bill whereby taxpayers may voluntarily check off, donate and pledge an amount not less than $1 or higher or other higher amount to be added to taxes due, and to establish a Town, “Aid to the Elderly and Disabled Tax Fund.” The purpose of the fund is to defray the real estate taxes of elderly and disabled residents of low income. The Taxation Aid Committee was formed and met for the first time on August 17, 2021. Members of the Committee are local residents of Eastham, along with members of the Town of Eastham Administration.
If you are interested in donating to this fund please write a check payable to the Town of Eastham and mail it to: Town of Eastham, Taxation Aid Fund, 2500 State Highway, Eastham, MA 02642. Please put “Tax Aid” in the memo line of your check.
You may also donate online, with applicable fees (.50 cent if you use an ACH/Check or 2.95% fee if credit card is utilized) charged by the processing center: Click HERE
