Mayor Charles C. Kokoros is proposing a property tax exemption for Gold Star mothers and fathers. The Town currently offers several statutory exemptions for residents relative to their real estate tax obligations. In these exemptions are certain benefits for Veterans but the Town does not currently offer an exemption for Gold Star mothers and fathers. Gold Star parents are parents of a member of the U.S. Armed Forces who died in service to our nation.
“The tax exemption for Gold Star mothers and fathers is something that I strongly support,” said Mayor Kokoros. “Gold Star families have suffered great loss and as a community this is the least we can do to thank them for the sacrifices made for our great nation.”
The Mayor’s proposal for the property tax exemption for Gold Star parents is currently pending approval from the Town Council.
