About This Page

Town Aid is a general-purpose aid that can be used for any lawful expenditure and is intended to provide property tax relief. The Department of Revenue certifies aid amounts for towns by Aug. 1 each year. We base this certification on current statutes, including any changes from the most recent legislative session.

The amount of aid your town receives is based on its:
 
  • Ratio of adjusted net tax capacity of agricultural property to adjusted net tax capacity of all other property
  • Total land and water acreage
  • Population
