In Marshfield, we abate both taxes based on a calendar year - I would be interested to hear if this is incorrect.

I have just received two separate requests for abatement.  One of the requests involves property that was lost in a fire.  The town runs on a calendar year and the school is on a fiscal year.  If the Board decides to abate but wants to prorate the amount, is it calculated using both the fiscal year formula for the school tax and the calendar year formula for the town tax?
