Annual Exempt Organization Forms


Annual Exempt Organizational Forms (3ABC)

Certain organizations may qualify to receive an exemption from local property taxes. The types of organizations that may qualify include: religious, charitable, benevolent, educational, literary, temperance, or scientific organizations. 

Organizations seeking exemptions for real property or personal property they own on January 1 preceding the fiscal year must complete a Form 3ABC, which is a state tax form, each year. 

An organization needs to file the form annually before the start of the fiscal year. The deadline is March 1, 2024.

The Assessing Department is pleased to present the Annual Exempt Organization Forms (State Tax Form 3ABC) as an online form.  Please use this link https://cambridgema.portal.opengov.com/categories/1127/record-types/6865 to fill out the 3ABC form.   If you do not already have a Viewpoint account with the City of Cambridge, you will need to create one for the application. 

The application requires that you fill it out completely by following the steps in the online portal to submit the application.  This includes uploading required documents, like the Form PC, before submitting the application. Once the application is completed, you will receive an email notifying you that your application has been successfully submitted to the Assessing Department. 

If you would prefer to receive a paper 3ABC application or have any questions, please contact the Assessing Department at 617-349-4343.
