The Assessors are required by Massachusetts law to value all real and personal property within the town. The legal standard is that all property, from the smallest condominium to the largest commercial property, is assessed at its “Full And Fair Market Value”. This is done to ensure that all taxpayers only pay their fair share of the cost of local government.

Assessors also have the responsibility of issuing; motor vehicle excise tax bills (originated by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (800) 585-3926 and boat excise tax bills which are generated at the local level. Assessors also administer; water, street and sewer betterments generated by other municipal departments. Assessors must also review and process personal exemptions which are a form of tax credits for qualified tax payers.

Assessors have a major role in promoting effective financial management in the town. Real estate and motor vehicle excise tax levies account for a majority of the funds available to the municipality to provide necessary services. Efficient and effective assessment practices result in predictable tax levies which is essential to maintaining adequate and sufficient cash flow for the town.
