If you are a City of Aiken resident, are 60 years of age or older and would like to serve your City, the Senior Tax Work-Off Program could be just right for you! The Senior Tax Work-Off Program has been a great success for more than a decade for both the City and for many of our active seniors. The City of Aiken is now taking applications from seniors for the 2019 “Senior Class.” Under the program, qualifying seniors may work at jobs for the City and in doing so, pay off their City taxes. City departments often have special jobs that seniors enjoy and at which they excel. Citizens who work on this program often express their desire to come back the following year. Some seniors have been working off taxes through the program for many years.
In order to qualify for the program to work off 2018 taxes, a City resident must be 60 years of age or older as of December 31, 2018. In addition, the resident must own property in the City of Aiken and live in the location where taxes are due. Please call the City Manager’s Office at (803) 642-7654 for more information.
