An Act authorizing the town of Dudley to grant tax abatements for certain taxes to certain military personnel.

 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              Notwithstanding any special or general laws to the contrary, the Dudley board of Assessors is authorized to grant, starting in fiscal year of 2015 real and personal property tax abatements, up to 100% of the total tax assessed, to our “citizen soldiers” of the Massachusetts national Guard and reservists on active duty and serving in foreign countries, subject to eligibility criteria developed by the Board of Assessors. The authority to grant abatements under this act shall expire after Fiscal year 2005, unless specifically extended by a vote of the Dudley Board of Selectmen. Further, the General Court may make clerical and editorial changes of form only to the bill, unless the Board of Selectmen approves amendments to the bill before enactment by the General court, and further to authorize the Board of selectmen to approve amendments which shall be within the scope of the general public objectives of this petition.
