A decade-old Massachusetts program that allows a property tax break for senior citizens may be introduced in the state’s third largest city.  Springfield would join several smaller cities in the region that already offer the popular program.

The Senior Tax Work-Off Program allows homeowners over the age of 60 to perform tasks for a municipality in exchange for a one-time abatement of a portion of their property tax bill.  It is offered in more than 100 cities and towns in Massachusetts including Westfield, Chicopee and Holyoke.
