BrocktonPost BROCKTON--Ward 2 City Councilor Thomas Monahan will host a Real Estate Tax Abatement workshop today, January 18, at 6:30 p.m. at the Arnone School. Bill Bearce from Bearce Insurance will put on a presentation along with Bernie Hassan from Briarwood Real Estate and Paula C. Odierno of Copperwood Real Estate. Registrar of Deeds, John Buckley and Attorney Jake Creedon will also be there. Abatement forms will be available. Anyone who is seeking relief from the city's property tax valuation must request an abatement by Feb. 1, 2012 to begin the process. Applications after that date will not be heard. Officials will try to answer any questions and help fill out abatement forms. These people are donating their time and it is greatly appreciated. This is an excellent opportunity to take advantage of the right of asking for an abatement of your home values.
