The Assessing Department must determine the assessed value of all taxable real and personal property as of January 1 of each year as required by M.G.L. 59 c.59 s.38. The interim adjustments have been completed for Fiscal Year 2016. This revaluation is an analysis of market trends, assessment levels and uniformity of all properties to achieve full and fair cash value of assessments. This work is done in accordance with the requirements of M.G.L. c.40 s.56 and c.58 s. 1, 1A, and 3.
The Assessing Department continues its goal to keep our values current and our records accurate. This site will be updated periodically. In December 2016 we were certified by the Department of Revenue for Fiscal Year 2017 values. The tax rate for Fiscal Year 2017 is $18.10 per thousand of value. If you have any questions you can contact the Assessing Department during regular Town Hall business hours.
