For tax year 2017, the credit is worth as much as $1,080 for eligible taxpayers 65 and older who either own or rent their home. The credit is refundable, meaning that if a taxpayer does not have an offsetting state tax liability, or has a liability that is smaller than the credit, they receive a check from the Commonwealth for either the entire credit or for the portion left after taxes are paid. Seniors who live in public or subsidized housing are not eligible for the credit.

DOR's Brian Lynch will conduct informational sessions on the credit in various Massachusetts senior centers and Council on Aging (COA) offices. We hope to see you there!
