All hours must be completed between January 1st and November 30th. You will receive a certificate of completion and a W-2 by January 31st of the following year. The abatement is applied to the following year’s tax bill (i.e. hours worked and credit earned between January 1, 2019 and November 30, 2019 will be applied to FY 2020 beginning on July 1, 2019). Therefore, you will be able to use it for your remaining unpaid taxes for your third and fourth quarter bill (which will be split in half between the two quarters). However, you will not see it credited on your bill statement until your fourth quarter bill dated May 1st.
