Are you trying to raise taxes?

This program is not an effort to raise taxes. The amount the Town can tax is regulated by Proposition 2 1/2 and the budget is voted on annually at Town Meetings. The goal of Property Assessment is to ensure that we are treating all property owners fairly and equitably. If we are doing that, then each taxpayer is paying his or her "fair share" of the tax burden. Our goal is to have your property information as accurate as possible.
