If you are dropping off paperwork, please leave in Tax Collector’s Office.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Office of the Assessors is required by Massachusetts’s law to list and value all real and personal property as of January 1. All assessed values in Massachusetts are based on “full and fair cash value”. The assessors are responsible for meeting the certification requirement of the Department of Revenue. To meet these requirements, we are obligated to revalue all properties yearly, and once every three years undergo a state recertification audit.
The Office of the Assessors also administers the following programs:
- Real Estate and Personal Property Tax Abatement
- Personal Property Form of List
- Supplement Tax Billing
- Senior Real Estate Tax Exemptions
- Veteran Real Estate Tax Exemptions
