Does MA statutory exemption cover property tax from previous years?

Additional Information:

My mother currently owes back property tax for a few years and just found out that she can apply for a statutory exemption. My question is does the statutory exemption only cover the current year or can it be applied to the past years that she owes taxes for?


In some cases a Property Tax exemption that was not taken in a prior year can be obtained in the current year.  Even if the taxes were not paid the exemption may still be available.
