What Do Assessors Do?

The Assessors' Office is responsible for the administration of all laws and regulations regarding real property assessment and valuation. The Assessors, as required by Chapters 59, 60A, 61, 61A, 61B, 121A of the Massachusetts General Laws and various Acts of the Legislature, perform the valuation of approximately 7,202 parcels of property. This includes residential, commercial, industrial, utilities, and personal property. The Assessors process approximately 21,000 excise tax bills on motor vehicles each year. The Assessors establish the assessed value of property each fiscal year and conduct hundreds of inspections to track value changes. The office is also responsible in tracking property sales and parcel changes to adjust mapping annually. In addition, the office is required to set annual tax rates for all classes of property each year.
