The Board of Assessors’ responsibility is to reinspect, measure and list all residential properties in the town, to meet cyclical reinspection requirements of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. This inspection is simply a recollection of all physical property data in order to maintain data quality. The inspection requires a quick interior inspection, which normally takes only 5 to 10 minutes, and the measuring of all exterior structures.
We would like to ask for cooperation from all homeowners, as the Massachusetts Department of Revenue mandates this program. The reinspections are done on a 9-year cycle. To ensure accurate assessment, it is to your advantage to allow an interior inspection when requested. By denying an inspection, you may lose some rights if you feel the need to appeal your assessment.
We will make every effort to schedule inspections with homeowners. If we are unable to enter your property we will estimate your interior information.
If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Assessors Office at (508) 824-2704.
