Board of Assessors

Duties & Responsibilities

The main priority of the office is to provide fair and equitable valuations for the purpose of taxation. The Town currently values all real and personal property. Assessors have a responsibility for the Motor vehicle excise tax bills originated by the State Registry of Motor Vehicles. The Registry updates bills to reflect recent change and then pass the bills on to the Town for distribution. Assessors grant abatements and answer questions regarding excise tax bills.

The Assessors also do not determine property taxes. The Municipality itself determines the level of taxation, through its Town Meeting process.
