The Assessors' Office is responsible for administering Massachusetts property tax laws effectively and equitably and for producing accurate and fair assessments of all taxable property. Taxable property includes not only real estate but personal property, motor vehicle and boat excise as well.
Another function of the office is to send exemption and deferral forms to property owners who have received an exemption/deferral during the previous year. The most common exemptions are elderly, blind and qualifying veterans.
The Chief Assessor and staff are available to answer your questions during regular office hours and will be happy to provide assistance in filling out forms.
