What Do Assessors Do?
The Assessors' Office is responsible for the administration of all laws and regulations regarding property tax assessment. The Assessors, as required by Chapters 59, 60A, 61, 61B, 121A of the Massachusetts General Laws and various Acts of the Legislature, perform the appraisal of approximately 6,530 parcels of property. This includes residential, commercial, industrial, utilities, and personal property. The Assessors process approximately 19,000 excise tax bills on motor vehicles each year. The Assessors establish the assessed value of property each fiscal year.
